Description


Untranslated ALS in French, two pages, 5.25 x 8, Giverny par Vernon letterhead, April 8, 1924. In fine condition. In 1923, Monet underwent two operations to remove his cataracts. Prior to the procedures his paintings bore a general reddish tone, which is characteristic of the sight of cataract victims. After surgery it's posited that he was able to see certain ultraviolet wavelengths of light that are normally excluded by the lens of the eye, a unique side effect that may have influenced his later years. The operations did little to hamper the aging artist's ambition, with Monet repainting some of his earlier paintings to suit his new vision.
