Dufy writes on “l’Art Vivant”

ALS in French, two pages, 5.25 x 7, April 23, 1919. Handwritten letter to poet and art critic Andre Salmon. In full (translated): "Upon my return to Paris I found your letter letting me know about the new growth of Cres and Company. Congratulations for your being called to run the Art Vivant gallery. I gladly accept your offer. I could show some drawings and watercolors right away. How many pieces should be put together? At what time will you be at Rue Hautefeuille?" In fine condition, with trivial staining to edges. Salmon published a journal entitled l'Art Vivant, which featured pieces about artists and several illustrations; one of Dufy's illustrations was published in the 1920 edition, alongside the likes of Matisse and Picasso. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
