Abstract:

Undated letter to the painter Gaston La Touche signed by Rosemonde Rostand, the wife of the successful poet and playwright Edmond Rostand, whose villa Arnaga at Cambo (Pyrénées Atlantiques) was being decorated by La Touche. Mrs. Rostand suggests some changes in the decorative panel conceived by the artist representing a masked ball, a recurrent theme among the various "fêtes galantes" painted by La Touche for interior decorations. She does not like the setting in a theater hall: "Ne pourriez-vous pas transporter votre vision dans un autre intérieur plus verlainien? ... Il y a toujours un peu trop d'Offenbach et de Métro dans l'atmosphère d'un bal dansé dans un théatre." Indeed, the artist is free to follow his inspiration, and the architect Tournaire will send him the measurements for the panel.
