Russian painter of Belarusian Jewish origin (1893–1943) who made a major contribution to the expressionist movement while living in Paris. ALS in French, signed “Soutine,” one page on the reverse of a 4.5 x 6 Grand Cafe Chaucuard mailing envelope, postmarked December 8, 1939. Letter to Gerda Groth, in full (translated): "At the prefecture of Auxerre, I spoke with the commissar general who knows me as a painter. He told me that in fact he remembers your unhappy affair; he will want me to return to Paris to see Monsieur Dubois again." Soutine adds a brief postscript: "I will sleep this evening in Auxerre because I feel very tired." Soutine addresses the envelope in his own hand, incorporating his signature, "Soutine," into the return address field. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds and scattered light creasing.
