In our June 2018 auction we sold this fascinating piece of history. Before Claude Monet became successful he really struggled financially as an artist. When his wife became sick, he could not afford to pay for her medication. In this letter he begs for help from one of his first art buyers. Here is the description:

Claude Monet Autograph Letter Signed to His Patron, Georges de Bellio — ”…my wife is sick and I didn’t have the means to buy what the doctor prescribed her. I am truly ashamed to bother you…”

Claude Monet autograph letter signed to an early and important buyer of his art, Georges de Bellio. In this very poignant letter dated 5 April 1878, Monet asks de Bellio for money in order to pay for his wife’s prescriptions. At this time, Monet was painting some of his most important impressionist works, and is the same year that de Bellio bought Monet’s ”Impression, rising sun” at auction, but before Monet found commercial success.

Signed ”Claude Monet”, letter in French translates, ”I called on you last night, you had just left. I had come to ask you to help me, my wife is sick and I didn’t have the means to buy what the doctor prescribed her.

I am truly ashamed to bother you with this sort of thing, but if you could spare 3 or 4 louis, you would render me a great service.

I can work, I will come see you tomorrow morning or just in the evening, around 6 o’clock, if the weather allows me to work during the day and I assure you that one must be strong-minded to work in the midst of so many worries and upheavals…Claude Monet”.

Two page letter on card-style stationery measures 5.25” x 8.25”. Separation starting along folds and a bit of worming at top of first page, not affecting writing. Accompanied by original envelope hand-addressed by Monet, with both the letter and envelope stamped by the previous owner, Dr. Max Thoren. Very good condition. Sold for $3,750.

Claude Monet Autograph Signed Letter

Claude Monet autograph letter signed, dated 24 September 1911 following the death of his beloved wife Alice. Monet writes on black-bordered mourning stationery embossed with “Giverny Par Vernon Eure”, in his signature purple fountain pen ink. In French to Genevieve Hoschede (Alice’s daughter-in-law), he writes, “…Thanks for thinking to write to me, and thanks to my good Jean Pierre for having taken a moment to come to visit me, so sad when I see the house so empty, and no longer see your dear faces. You have so kindly accustomed me to your daily visits…Nothing much new here except for the fact that I have decided to fire that drunkard, Durthenuy, and it is good riddance…I keep corresponding in search of a suitable servant, but have had no success in finding the pearl that I require…Last Thursday I was paid a visit by my dear friend Geoffroy together with Doctor Vaquez, his brother, and Ajalbert. This was a cheerful distraction from my usual sad thoughts…I leave you now, my good Genevieve. I embrace you most tenderly…I shall write one of these days to J[ean] P[ierre]. Your old father who loves you, Claude Monet.” Jean-Pierre Hoschede is believed to be Monet’s biological son from an affair with Alice before they were married. Letter is accompanied by the original envelope hand addressed by Monet. Four page letter on card-style stationery measures 5.25″ x 8.25″ folded. Show-through and haloing to some of the ink, likely as a result of the coating on the paper. Overall very good condition with poignant content. With University Archives COA. Sold for $3,403.
