Hand-addressed black-bordered mailing envelope, 5 x 3.5, attractively addressed in purple ink by Monet to influential art critic and author Gustave Geffroy, “Monsieur G. Geffroy, 42 Avenue des Gobelins, Paris.” Envelope bears an affixed 10-cent French postage stamp and is postmarked Vernon, Eure, France, November 25, 1911. In fine condition, with postmarks affecting portions of the address. Geffroy was a founding member of the literary organization Academie Goncourt in 1900 and noted as one of the earliest historians of the Impressionist movement. Geffroy knew and championed Monet after meeting him in Belle-Ile-en-Mer in 1886, where Monet was working on paintings of the local oceanside rock formations which astounded the Paris art world when first exhibited in 1887. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
