TOULOUSE-LAUTREC Adèle Tapié de Céleyran, comtesse de (1841-1930) mère du peintre.
L.A.S. "Adèle", Paris 5 May 1881, to her "dear sister" [her sister-in-law Alix TAPIÉ DE CÉLEYRAN, née de Toulouse-Lautrec]; 6 pages in-8.
On the artistic disposition of the young Henri, aged 17.
After various news of the parents found in Paris, she speaks of her son: "Henry has really taken the enthusiasm of Princeteau and, what is more, of the two from the passage. He is encouraged to throw himself into art and my funny man is up to his neck in it. As soon as he had breakfast in the morning, he left alone, full of enthusiasm, and went to paint at Princeteau's, who had given him the key to his studio as if to a colleague. Not to fail in family tradition, he began by posing a monkey in the neighborhood and all the rapins in the vicinity come to see. Alphonse is delighted and busy with all this, in a word everyone is happy; let's hope it lasts! Henry will probably try to pass his bachot with Louis in July"... Other family news...
