Gauguin, Paul, French painter (1848-1903).
Autograph letter signed.
N. p. o. d, 1851. 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. To Émile Schuffenecker, thanking him for arranging for Gauguin to travel to Paris by train: „Thank you very much for your letter and for sending it. I just wrote Bernard about my desire to leave for Paris; thus, your offer to send me on the trip comes just at the right time and I happily accept it. Moreover, I will organize to sell something in Paris, and therefore you will be reimbursed within short time, I believe. On the 4 or the 5 I will take the train. And if I dont make it to Tonkin I will try to work outside of painting for some time because it’s necessary to hold course. Or I will rather push the minister of finance to give me something in France. But I would have to be in Paris for that. [.]". - The French Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher and art collector Émile Schuffenecker (1851-1934) was a close friend of Paul Gauguin and Odilon Redon, and one of the first collectors of works by Vincent van Gogh. Until the early 1890s when Gauguin and Schuffenecker quarrelled, Schuffenecker gave great support to Gauguin, encouraging him to take up a career as a painter. He also had the idea for the 1889 Exhibition at the Volpini Gallery, a key moment in Gauguin's influence on young painters.
