Highly regarded French painter (1830–1903), one of the leading figures of the impressionist movement, best known for his distinctive pointillist style. ALS in French, signed “C. Pissarro,” on a self-contained addressed 4.75 x 5 mailing sheet, April 15, 1902. Letter to his physician, Dr. Parenteau. In full (translated): “I am congested yet again. Right at the time when I am ready to pack my trunk, please kindly come by to see me. I managed to avoid a crisis all these days…Anyway! That is it!” Under his signature, Pissarro adds a brief postscript, “And yet I must go! The flowers will disappear.” In very good condition, with central horizontal and vertical fold, a bit of mild toning, rusty paperclip mark along top edge, adhesive residue along left edge, and show-through from postmarks and printing on reverse.
