ALS in French, signed “P. Gauguin,” three pages, 3.75 x 6, [1882].

In part (translated): "Your orders will be faithfully carried out and your paintings will be taken to his house; I'm going there this evening to come to an understanding with him on this subject. I hardly expect to see you until around the 21st of this month. The Renoir exhibition has a little less people than that of Claude Monet; saw yesterday at my brother-in-law's house a Norwegian art critic who thought that we should put a painting by Claude Monet in Luxembourg—I am sending you a little thing by Théodore de Banville is that of the movement we are talking about or of a man in Mr. Arosa was buried Thursday I received a letter to share for you entrusted to my care (we did not know your address). I am not sending it to you, it is useless but I am warning you so that you send your card, like me, moreover, who did not go there. You've had a streak of good weather. I hope you have been able to work very well. And your dinner went well you don't tell me about it. Was the union formed with the irremovable and was the death of the yellows decreed?" In fine condition. A significant handwritten letter by the influential painter, recording his artistic observations in the year of the the seventh Impressionist exhibition at the Durand-Ruel Gallery in Paris.
