ALS in French, signed “J. Ingres,” one page, 5.25 x 8, July 26, 1855. Letter to Charles-Leon Vinit, the director of the Ecole Royale des beaux-Arts, in full (translated): "You know how much I loved your so much regretted mother. I join fully in your grief but it is in these misfortunes that one can do nothing but bow down one's head, and consolations have no power. If, however, my sad sympathy could relieve your bitter sorrow, I offer it to you from the bottom of my heart." In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing. Accompanied by a receipt from noted autograph dealer Kenneth Rendell.
