Pechstein, Max, German expressionist painter and printmaker (1881-1955). Autograph letter signed.

Berlin, 7 Nov. 1937.

Large 4to. 2¾ pp. on bifolium.


Comprehensive letter in German, to the artist Irmgard Hasenbach-Tavolato (née Seeling, 1899-1978) in Merano, about his financial worries: "Now, after my return to Berlin, I have learned of many things which also concern myself and which make it necessary for me to decide how I shall plan my further life so as to take care of myself and my family, for this I can no longer do by working as a painter [...] Is it possible that I exhibit in Italy, and may I sell my works, should someone wish to buy them? My savings would last for a little while, as I would be staying at a cheap fishing village. Here, my very existence consumes everything! and I can see when I will have reached the end [...]".
