Large and highly desirable AQS in French on an off-white 6.75 x 4.5 sheet, in full (translated): "The only interesting autographs, are those that are discovered, and not those that we ask for, Claude Monet." A collector's notation in the lower left dates the piece to October 2, 1922. In fine condition, with a central vertical fold, and light toning to the lower half. By this late period of his life Monet was nearly blind, hence his large, deliberate handwriting—and his impressive 3.5″ long signature. A superb exemplar of the great Impressionist's autograph.
