Dear Mrs. Chadbourne:

As I know of all the interest you have evidenced in fine drawings and water colors, I take the liberty of enclosing herewith the photograph of a very reasonable water color by CEZANNE, which we have just received from Europe. It has never been exhibited so far, and is reproduced in the book of Vollard on Cézanne.

It comes directly from the Cézanne family, and it is a study for the famous picture "The Card Players" which, as you know, is in the Barnes Foundation. Replicas of it can also be seen in the Camondo Collection of the Louvre; the Stephen C. Clark Collection; and the Samuel Courtault Foundation.

We have also been fortunate enough to find two drawings by INGRES. If such is your desire, I could send you photographs of them.

Hoping to have the privilege of hearing from you, and thanking you in advance, please believe me to be

Yours very respectfully,

(C. M. de Hauke)

Mrs. Emily Crane Chadbourne,
2000 Massachusetts Ave.,N.W.,
