Dear Mr. Thomson -
What is your idea about the Sarasate? -
Meantime I am sending today four new proofs lithographs:
|La Terrace Luxembourg - ||4-4-|
|Petit café au bois -||4-4|
|minus the 15%|
[p. 2] Also I send to facilitate you, the photograph of Sarasate -
The picture itself is in the Exposition Internationale at Antwerp - which instead of interfering with its sale ought rather to increase its value - I was unanimously to have been proposed by the Jury for the grande médaille d'honneur - only the rules happened to limit the date of painting - which required that works should have been painted since the last exhibition - This put the Sarasate just out of the competition - and I was ranked "Hors Concours" -
Write me about all this
