Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $1,580.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Important French painter and sculptor (1834-1917) regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism. Scarce ALS in French, signed “Degas,” one page, 4 x 5, no date. Letter to his close friend, Ludovic Halevy, the writer and librettist of Carmen, informing him that he will not be able to attend dinner, but promises that he will come visit. In fine condition. Handwritten letters and notes by Degas are quite scarce and do not come to market often. Degas executed gelatin silver prints of numerous members of the Halevy family. A superb artistic association piece.
