Bonnard, Pierre (1867-1947) Autograph Note Signed, undated.
Single page, perforated and torn all around. To Paul Gallimard (1850-1929) asking that he loan two Lautrecs from his office to Bonnard for the Exposition des Independants. Center fold, perforations torn somewhat hastily when the note was opened, with two short tears on the left edge, the right edge torn with loss of one or two letters, and perhaps a short word, slight toning at head, with holograph address on verso, 7 x 4 in.
Bonnard asks Gallimard to loan him "deux Lautrec" that he has to the right and left of the window in his office. He notes that one has broken glass, and that he will have his own framer replace it. Bonnard thanks Gallimard on behalf of himself and "Les Independants."
