The receipient of Manet's illustrated letter was Zacharie Astruc (1833-1907), a cultural figure who played key role in Manet's professional success. While working as an art critic in the 1860s, Astruc was one of the first to recognize Manet's talents, and his poem in the catalogue for the 1865 Paris salon is generally credited with bestowing the title "Olympia" on the artist's famous painting. Astruc was also an artist, and his work was featured in the inaugural exhibition of the Impressionist painters in 1874. An English translation of the letter is as follows: Bellevue, Monsieur Zacharie, Send me your news. Has your health returned? I would love to speak with you soon. I am doing much better and I hope my stay here will have done me a world of good. I’’m living under a shell, let me know what is going on. My best to Mme Astruc, and to you, E. Manet 41 route des Gardes Very good condition. The letter consists of two sheets, formerly framed as a double-sided letter. The second sheet is slightly timed-stained. A faint, horizontal crease appears across both sheets. The medium is well-preserved and the sheets themselves are in very good condition. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.

PROPERTY FROM THE ESTATE OF ROSALYND C. PFLAUM Rosalynd C. Pflaum was a noted author, philanthropist and collector who learned the French language as a young girl and became a lifelong admirer and scholar of French history and culture. Her curated collection of works on paper includes the most acclaimed of French artists, most notably a small drawing by Édouard Manet of Mademoiselle Juliette Dodu (lot 101), the first woman to be awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d’’’’Honneur for her heroism in the Franco-Prussian war. In 1978, shortly after acquiring this portrait of Odilon Redon’’’’s sister-in-law, Mrs. Pflaum was similary honored by the French government and awarded the Legion of Honor. In 1936, she met Minnesota native Leo R. Pflaum, a young executive in the family owned clothing company which became M.L. Rothschild-Young Quinlan Company. She began her college studies at Stanford University, where she was admitted at the mere age of sixteen. Upon her marriage, Mrs. Pflaum continued her college education at the University of Minnesota and became one of the first women in the State to obtain her pilot's license. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude in 1945 and a Master's Degree in 1954 from the University. The following year, Mrs. Pflaum acquired vibrant watercolours by André Derain (lot 104) and Paul Cézanne (lot 106). A French scholar, she wrote six biographies: Madame de Stael (1954); The Emperor's Talisman (The Life of the Duc de Morney) (1954); By Influence and Desire (The Grand Duchess of Courland and her Daughters) (1984); Grand Obsession (Madame Curie and her World ) (1989); Marie Curie and Her Daughter Irene (1991); and Talleyrand (2010), when she was 93 years old. She and her husband were long-time supporters of the arts, in particular the Minnesota Orchestra, where she served on its board as a life director. They regularly entertained visiting artists, who added their signatures to the walls of their family's guest bathroom. During the Second World War, she served locally in the Red Cross, driving a blood mobile. In 1949, she was one of the founders of the Women's Association of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra (WAMSO), and served as its president for the first five years. She later inaugurated WAMSO's Young Artist Competition, WAMSO's 58-year-old education program, and until her death supported its annual scholarship award. Christie’’’’s is delighted to be offering a selection of works from her beloved collection, which includes the lots on the following pages. Additional works on paper from the Estate of Rosalynd C. Pflaum include a drawing by Diego Rivera to be offered in the Latin American Paintings sale, November 2014; works on paper by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot to be offered in the January 2015, Old Master Drawings sale; and a portrait by Mary Cassatt to be offered in March 2015, American Paintings sale.
