DescriptionTWO LETTERS FROM RENOIR TO ALINE ADVISING HER THAT A LAST MINUTE PROJECT WILL DELAY HIS RETURN HOME
THE RENOIR COLLECTION
Autograph letter signed, one page [one sheet folded, three pages blank], Renoir writes: My dear little friend, at the moment when I was packing my trunk, someone came to me to do a portrait of a child. I could not refuse. Even though I doubt success- it's very difficult. What's more, I'm a bit nervous not to be able to leave when I want. I'm going to try to finish this portrait as early as possible. I don't count on coming before Friday or Saturday. I will be writing you as soon as I'm sure. In any case, it won't be till the end of the week. Love, Auguste. Accompanied by a second autograph letter signed, one page [one sheet folded, three pages blank]. Renoir writes: My dear friend, I am so happy with your letter of this morning that tells me that near here _______. I'm going to go there. If by chance I find an inexpensive inn, I will ask Latty (Dr. Latty) if we can bring Pierre with us [Pierre needed fresh air (from the sea) because of weak lungs]. For this is a nice place and this will be a simple project. Because of the cold, the portrait I am painting will be late. But I will take it up again tomorrow. In the meantime, I am doing flowers. Love to you all. Auguste.
