Abstract:

Collection consists of letters to several correspondents, including Louis Boudin, Louis Braquaval, Pierre Martin and Armand Desire Gautier.

Series I. Letters to Louis Boudin, 1853-1897: Seventy letters to his brother, written from Quimper, Paris, Brussels and Trouville. The artist discusses at length his life in each of these places, describing the regional culture and landscape and his career as an artist. The earlier letters describe his art education, his work with Constant Troyon, and his first sale. The later letters include mention of the work of Claude Monet, and the successful sales of Boudin's paintings by the dealer Pierre Martin. The artist also discusses his brother's interest in literature, and the effects of war on the peoples of Belgium and France. In chronological order.

Series II. Miscellaneous letters, 1852-1898: Includes two letters to his parents, mostly of a personal nature; two letters to the painter Armand Desire Gautier praising a portrait and other works by Gautier, and discussing problems with the Salon jury system and his own work plans (1865, 1879); one letter to Pierre Martin regarding the sale of paintings at an exhibition in Le Havre (1868); seven letters to his student Louis Braquaval, with one recommending that he visit the Monet exhibition at Durand-Ruel's gallery (1894-1898); and two letters to Guyotin pertaining to the delivery of paintings and suggesting a price for a view of Venice (1897). In alphabetical order by correspondent.
