PISSARRO, Camille (1830-1903). French painter.
Autograph Letter Signed (in French) to his doctor, 1½ pages 8vo, 62 Bath Road, Bedford Park, London, 15 July 1897. Asking for a consultation for his son, Lucien, on their return to Paris. With a complete transcript and an English translation.
'... Would you be so kind as to write me a line to the Hotel Garnier, 111 rue St Lazare. Dr MacNish, who has been looking after him here is writing to give you details of the illness he has been treating. Naturally I would prefer to see you rather than your locum.'
The letter is almost certainly to Dr Léon Simon, the homeopath use by Camille Pissarro in Paris. Lucien had moved to the address in London from which this letter was written on 6 April 1897, where he suffered a second cerebral haemorrhage on about 3 May, following that of about 19 March. Camille came to visit him on 7 May, and took him, with his wife Esther and daughter Orovida, back to Paris to convalesce in mid-July. MacNish was the homeopathic doctor consulted by Lucien in England.
