Description: "EFFECTS THAT COME WITH A LITTLE SUNSHINE ARE THE SLOWEST TO GET DONE" PISSARRO, CAMILLE. Autograph Letter Signed, "C. Pissarro," to his wife ("My dear Julie"), in French, reporting on his health and the pace of his painting. 2 pages, 12mo, written on the first and terminal pages of a folded sheet; faint scattered foxing, minor scattered fading to text (still very legible, signature is bold); matted with a portrait and framed. "Hotel d'Angleterre," Rouen, 22 October 1894

Notes: ". . . I am making slow progress with my pictures; every day there are new effects, and those effects that come with a little sunshine are the slowest to get done. Here comes the fog . . . . My health is mostly all right; it is this abominable food that I cannot get used to; but patience, as long as I can do my work and sell my pictures. No news from [art dealer Alphonse] Portier."
