Description


Eminent French author (1804–1876), born Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin, better known by the masculine pen name she adopted early in her career. An early feminist, she also earned a footnote in musical history as the longtime romantic companion of pianist/composer Frédéric Chopin. ALS in French, signed “G Sand,” one page, 5.25 x 8, personal letterhead, July 16, 1875. Letter to M. Verdot, in part (translated): “Two more shipments which I am entrusting to your good offices. The salon at Nohant, framed as simply as possible, for Monsieur S. Maulmond, St. Loup, near Gouzon, Creuse. The facade—large format—framed in the same way, for Dr. Paul Darchy, Chambon-sur-Voneze, Creuse. Put the total cost on my bill, even the postage.” Nicely double-matted and framed to an overall size of 11.75 x 14.75. In fine condition, with scattered toning. Sand was a talented watercolorist who frequently painted scenes in and around Nohant for her friends; Dr. Darchy had been her doctor for years, and Sigismond Maulmond had been an old friend. Less than a year after this letter was written, Sand passed away at the age of 71 and was buried in the grounds of her home in Nohant. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
