The bookends of Impressionism

Description

Important French painter and sculptor (1834–1917) regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism. ALS in French, signed “Degas,” one page, 4.25 x 5.5, January 14, 1908. Letter to Madame du Puigaudeau, the wife of painter Ferdinand du Puigaudeau. In full (translated): "I would have answered sooner to your good letter but it's been more than two weeks that I've been sick and I can barely get up. A good year to the three of you.” Addressed on the reverse in Degas’s hand. In fine condition. Ferdinand du Puigaudeau, known for his vibrant portrayals of twilight landscapes, was a close friend of Degas and classed with the post-Impressionists. An excellent association between friends and contemporaries working during these important artistic movements. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
