French artist (1896–1987) associated with the movements of Cubism and Surrealism. ALS in French, one page, 7.25 x 10, May 17, 1967. Untranslated letter to important French bookseller Pierre Beres, adding a large sketch of a cityscape with gondolas rowing in the foreground. In fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned press photo. In 1960, Beres had founded the Art de France, an annual review published until 1964 that included lithographs by Masson as well as the likes of Max Ernst, Pierre Soulages, Raoul Ubac, and Jacques Villon. By this time Masson’s style began departing from the abstraction that characterized his earlier work and the influence of Impressionism began to appear instead—something evident in the fabulous sketch he incorporates into this letter.
