Rare letter from Visconti to an acclaimed cellist

Acclaimed director of Ossessione, Death in Venice, and The Damned (1906–1976). ALS in French, one page both sides, 6 x 4.25, personal letterhead, May 13, 1973. Letter of thanks to Pierre Fournier, assuring him that he will think of him and his cello for his next film. In fine condition, with some brushing to signature. The next film he made was Conversation Piece, which starred an international cast of Burt Lancaster, Helmut Berger, and Silvana Mangano. Visconti is rare in any form, especially ALSs—this is the first we have offered. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
