ALS in French, one page, 4 x 5, Giverny par Vernon letterhead, February 17, 1906. Letter mentioning his famous art dealer Durand-Ruel, in full (translated): "You will easily find some photographic reproductions of my paintings at Mr. Durand-Ruel in New York." Archivally cloth-matted and framed with a self-portrait print to an overall size of 17.5 x 12.5. In fine condition.

The great art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel had recognized the potential of the Impressionists early on, and succeeded in establishing the international market for artists like Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. In 1887, he opened a gallery in New York, run by his sons on a day-to-day basis, which did much to introduce the Impressionists to America—and Monet's artwork was among the gallery's most popular offerings. Just before the end of his life, Monet said: 'We would have died of hunger without Durand-Ruel, all we Impressionists.'
