Letters, 1887-ca. 1910.

Author: Georges Rochegrosse
Edition/Format:   Archival material : French
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
The collection comprises three letters of Georges Rochegrosse related to his artistic activity. One is addressed to M. Bernier; the others have no date and no identified correspondents. Also enclosed is a printed two-page biography of the artist.

Rochegrosse informs Mr. Bernier that his picture "Le petit malade" was recently exhibited at Lyon, and describes the subject (1887 June 6).

A four-page letter was seemingly written to the editor of one of the reviews which published Rochegrosse's works. He has finished the sketches of the three panels and they should send their photographer to his studio in boulevard de Villiers. The subjects are "Les beaux arts," "Hygiène et assistance publique" and "Armée de terre et de mer - Colonies." The artist explains his technique for the execution of this "grande décoration" with 4 m. tall figures, placed at 30 m. above the floor in a poorly lit area. (ca. 1900?)

The third letter is written to a prospective patron from Djenan Meriem, Rochegrosse's villa close to Algiers, where he spends the winters. The artist will return to Paris in May, and would be "très heureux" to make his correspondent's portrait if he agrees with the prices: 8000 Fr. bust only; 10,000 Fr. with hands. (ca. 1910?)

A printed biography illustrated with a print reproduction of the artist's portrait was detached from a book or review. It also includes the reproduction of a self-portrait dated 1894. The latest date in the text is 1896. A small newspaper clipping with biographical notice and photo of Rochegrosse is pasted on the top of the first leaf. The latest work mentioned is from 1923. On the verso of the second leaf is pasted a reproduction of Rochegrosse's painting "L'angoisse humaine", dated 1896.  Read more...
