MONET, Claude (1840-1926). Autograph letter signed ('ton vieil ami Claude Monet') to AUGUSTE RENOIR, Giverny, 7 June 1909, 2 pages, 8vo, on a bifolium. Monet writes to thank Renoir for a 'joli médaillon' - he had been afraid Renoir had forgotten his promise to send it - adding that he has had frequent reports of Renoir through Germaine [probably Hoschedé, his stepdaughter] - 'il parait que vous commencez à cuire' - and looks forward with pleasure to a visit from him. Monet and Renoir had met while serving their apprenticeships together in the atélier of Charles Gleyre and remained lifelong friends. In June 1909 Monet was fresh from the enormously successful exhibition of 48 of his waterlily paintings, his first major exhibition since that of the London series in 1904.
