Claude Monet autograph letter signed, dated 21 June 1907, mentioning his intention to see an exhibition of Paul Cezanne's work, likely the first posthumous retrospective at the Salon d'Automne in 1907. Upon his ''Giverny near Vernon, Eure'' letterhead, and written in Monet's characteristic purple ink, letter translates in full,

''Dear Sir, I am quite upset that I was unable to take advantage of your good thought, but I was away (which I rarely am) and I was unaware of your your [sic] letter until my return, but I will not deprive myself of the pleasure of coming to see your Cezanne exhibition.

With all my thanks for thinking of me, please believe in my sincere sympathies / Claude Monet''.

Two page letter measures 5.25'' x 8'', on different leaves of bifolium, card-style stationery. Stamp of previous owner, otherwise near fine condition.
