French painter and illustrator (1864-1901), and one of the most famous artists of the Post-Impressionist period. Autograph letter signed, in 2 pages, in French. Lautrec updates his mother on his busy schedule, recent work and an upcoming show of his work: "...If I have not written you it is that I have been overbooked with work. I have worked as much as I am able only on my drawing of Figaro, but Bachon is not happy, I have not sent him Figaro. He made the observation to me that as an artist I have to show all the best works I am doing always so maybe I should not show it. I think that you would want me to listen to this sage reasoning...I am going to work this evening at the bar...Shoot!...". Each page is 5.1 x 8 inches, folds and some professionally repaired cracks and missing paper, tape marks on verso, in overall very good condition.
ALSO INCLUDED are a transcription of the text in French, and a photo postcard of Toulouse-Lautrec shown in his studio in front of a model and a painting - a nice image for anyone who wants to frame this fantastic autograph letter.
