MIRO, JOAN. (1893-1983). Catalan surrealist artist. ALS. (“Miro”). 2pp. 8vo. Paris, June 18, 1950. On letterhead of the Paris’ Pont-Royal Hotel. To Cuban lawyer, art critic and founding director of the Art Museum of the Americas JOSÉ GÓMEZ-SICRE (1916-1991). In Spanish with translation.
“My distinguished friend, I received your letter. I will be in Paris until June 30, then I will leave for Spain to rest a bit.
Since I will go to the country and travel a bit, I don’t think it would be very prudent for you to send me the copy there for me to sign it for you and return it to you afterwards.
Since I cannot get it in time in Paris, it would be preferable that you send it to the Galerie Maeght, telling them that they should hold on to it until I return so that I can sign it when I return to New York next year.
With an affectionate greetings…”
