Discussing a statue commissioned by the royal family

French sculptor and painter (1827–1875) from whom Napoleon III commissioned many works. ALS in French, one page, 5 x 8, July 4, 1866. Letter to the architect Louis-Francois Boitte. In part (translated): “I put myself at your disposal to restore the charming statuette of the Imperial Prince.” In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, some mirroring to ink, and a few stray marks and creases. This likely refers to Carpeaux’s 1865 marble sculpture known as ‘The Imperial Prince and his Dog Nero,’ which was well-received at the Salon of 1866. The statue is now a part of the French national collection at the Musee d’Orsay. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
