Letter and List of Answers from Félix Fénéon to Alfred Flechtheim

Date 16 Jan 1937

An (unsigned) letter written in French from Félix Fénéon (Parisian art critic and anarchist) to Alfred Flechtheim, on 16 Jan 1937, in which he discusses the London exhibition, "Seurat and his contemporaries" (20 Jan-27 Feb 1937) and hopes that Flechtheim is recovering from his illness. Flechtheim was working with Thos. Agnew & Sons at this time and has made an offer regarding artworks loaned to the exhibition; Fénéon gives his reasons for rejecting this and similar offers. The last two pages contain Fénéon's answers to questions concerning the Impressionists.
