Juan Gris (1887 - 1927), Spanish painter. Signed autograph letter to art critic and promoter of cubism, raynal maurice. Paris 18 December 1915; 3 pages 1/2 in-8°.
Rare and exceptional letter from the Spanish cubist painter, who died at only forty years old, giving news of the Parisian artistic and literary avant-garde scene, while the war has been engulfed for a year. It in turn evokes the moving burial of humbert marcelle, known as eva gouel, wife of pablo picasso, the surprising conversion to the Catholicism of max jacob, news of the health of andré salmon, the reverdy.It also reveals the underlying quarrels and tensions within the artistic community: "My dear friend. It's been a long time since I should have answered your last. What do you want is the flemme that gives the civilian cockroach. Because it's not only you who's bored, I don't have anything nice to teach you. Picasso's wife died in the last few days. The funeral at which we attend 9 or 8 friends was very sad, of course, from the few projections of max [jacob] that made it even more sinister. Picasso's pretty impressed with that. Maybe I'll sign a draft if the conditions work out.
Anyway, if the projects we're doing happen to be real, there's room for you. It's still too vague for me to tell you, but if it worked, I'd let you know. Basler [Basler Adolphe, Apollinaire Secretary, Art Critic and Art Broker] suddenly took care of me and he often comes to see me. He says a lot of good about you as the only critic who knows something about painting and who is general ideas.He discovered two new denominations for the painting: the painting of the central Europe don derain is the great master and the painting of the failed union to which all the ties revolutioners like segonzac and others join. He also called max the convert for the duration of the war on September 22, 1909, at the age of 33, the poet max jacob, of Jewish faith, saw "the host" on the wall of his room. This vision upsets him in the depths of his being.
I saw salmon was very sick. He's better, but he almost went through it. All this complicates what he looks like with a big mashed potatoes. Please write to me soon and receive my dear friend my whole friend. Juan gray my wife [josette] and the reverdy send you hello.
