ALS in French, signed “Your aff. father, C. Pissarro,” one page, 4.5 x 7, December 8, 1899. Letter to his fifth son Ludovic-Rodolphe, "Mon cher Rod," discussing his third son, Georges Henri Manzana Pissarro, both of whom were artists. In full (translated): "Georges re-entered the Neuilly sanitarium. I shall go to see him Saturday. I am late in doing so. L. Simon has assured me that he will be perfectly taken care of. Teissier is beside himself. I gave him your address a long time ago. I think as you do that we will be able to select a jewel for you to send to Madame Deoret, but you will have to assist me in the choice. Give Amicie my best regards and tell her not to torment herself so." In fine condition, with light toning from prior display. Accompanied by a modern cardstock print of a self-portrait by Pissarro. André Teissier was the family notary and friend of many noted artists, and Amicie Brecy was the second wife of Georges. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec had also been treated at the Neuilly sanitarium in 1899. A superb family letter boasting several artistic associations.
