Autograph Note in French Inscribed on Ingres' visiting card, n.d., n.p.

Under his printed name in French, "Mr. Ingres Member of the Institute," Ingres writes to Mrs. Vinit expressing his sympathy. Unsigned. His card measures 3 x 1.5 inches. Condition: on verso along one side is binding remnant; card has protective seal and printing is somewhat faded. Ingres is regarded as a precursor of modern art because of his expressive distortions of form and space and generally associated with Neo-classicism. By the end of his life his portraits were recognized as his greatest legacy.
