#610 - Claude Monet Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $1,000+

ALS in French in pencil, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.75 x 6.75, Giverny Par Vernon Eure letterhead, April 14, 1921. Letter to Jacques-Louis Duchemin, a member of the International Literary and Artistic Association, in full (translated): "I hurry to confirm you the receipt of your letter of the 8th current, received today and containing a check of 631 Fr. 80 C. for fees collected by you, deriving from one of my paintings 'Bridge over the Thames,' Georges Petit’s sale. I absolutely share your opinion and can only approve your intention to address a claim to the parliament, which is only too justified. Receive, dear Sir, my distinguished regards." In fine condition.

During the years between 1899 and 1905, Monet traveled to London to capture its sights from the fifth-floor balcony of the Savoy Hotel. He became captivated by the London fog, and from his bedroom he executed a series of paintings of Parliament and the bridges of Waterloo and Charing Cross. For over approximately half a century, Jacques-Louis Duchemin (1895-1978), and his son Wladimir Duchemin (1941-2018), director of the Society of artistic property for drawings and models, fought to establish and protect the rights of artists relating to remuneration, forgery, distribution, and exploitation.
