Émile Bernard. Autograph Letter Signed. "Emile." Two pages in French, 4" x 5.25", [n.p.; n.d.] A letter from Bernard to the French Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher, and art collector, Émile Schuffenecker (1851-1934). Bernard open his letter by asking Schuffenecker why they no longer write to each other. Thinking that he hurt Schuffenecker because of some slight, Bernard admits that he must have appeared harsh when it came to discussing "Jesus the savior," but it was said only because he wished to console him. He proceeds to claim that he shares Schuffenecker's pain and asks forgiveness if he has caused offense, writing, "may God judge this thing at his dazzling tribunal." Bernard closed the letter by claiming that his mother reminded him how kind Schuffenecker had been and how good a person he is, and signed off with "thank you and I am sorry." The letter is accompanied by: 1) ALS. "H. Bernard." Two pages (of a bifolium) in French, with canceled postal cover, 4.5" x 6.75", Paris; February 14, 1895. Letter from Héloïse Henriette Bernard-Bodin (1838/39-1909), Émile Bernard's mother, to Émile Schuffenecker, in which she asks how he is doing and tells him that she is forwarding a letter for him from her son. She mentions the cold weather and hopes that March will bring more gentle days to Colombes [outside of Paris], where they would be very happy to see him. 2) A print of a photograph, 3.5" x 4.5", 1895, of a building in Cairo, Egypt, with writing by Bernard on the verso, noting that "a house on a Cairo street in 1895, indicating that architecture is not yet dead in the Orient." In 1893, Bernard traveled to Egypt and lived in the Middle East for the next ten years. Condition: Good. The letter from Héloïse Henriette Bernard-Bodin has slight rust residue from a paperclip (since removed) at the right hand top of the last page, and what appears to be as light stain on the upper left corner of the last page.

Circa 1915-1947. The following original draft drawings and paintings by Marco Montedoro are being offered as a collection. They include original graphite, pen and ink, and watercolor paintings on paper and artist's board spanning the career of Marco Montedoro as a set and costume designer. The archive is a comprehensive representation of his professional career in Europe and the United States. Before he died, Montedoro gave his collection to his close friend Hella Arensen (ne Aronson), a German Jewish newspaper artist who emigrated from pre-war Nazi Germany to New York. Since Montedoro's death, the collection has remained in the Aronson family. Most images are signed by Montedoro, with an average size of 11" x 14", and are in varying condition. A full photographic gallery of this collection is available upon request. Montedoro's family of musicians considered him a child prodigy and sent him in his teens to Paris to study drawing and painting. He worked as an artist in Paris until 1913, when he became the artistic director of the Berlin Metropole. During WWI, he designed posters for Italian theaters and cinemas. Following the war, Montedoro returned to Paris to design costumes for the Palace, Ambassadeurs, Moulin Rouge, and Folies Bergère, including a 1927 show featuring Josephine Baker. During this period he also designed productions in Milan, Berlin, London, St. Petersburg, and Poland. In 1930, Montedoro relocated to New York City and designed for the Schuberts, including the 1941-1942 Broadway production of La Vie Parisienne. From 1932-1947, Montedoro worked alongside Vincinte Minelli designing sets and costumes for Radio City Music Hall, where Montedoro became head designer. Montedoro's genius is featured om Angelo Luerti's 2006 book 'Non Solo Erté - Not Only Erté, Costume Design for the Paris Music Hall 1918-1940.
