About

Autograph Postcard signed without indication of place nor date, addressed to Countess Pecci Blunt with china and pastel, pink and blue sketches. Marcoussis is the pseudonym of the French-born Polish painter Ludwig Casimir Markus, who come from a wealthy Jewish family in Warsaw. He moved to Paris in 1903 and gained French nationality thanks to the value demonstrated during World War I. He made his first impressionist paintings and earned money by selling caricatures to satirical magazines, including "La Vie Parisienne" and "Le Journal". He attentively attended coffee as La Rotonde, Cirque Médrano and L'Ermitage, where he met Edgar Degas around 1906 and Braque, Picasso, Gris and Apollinaire in 1910. Apollinaire, the influential poet of the Calligrams, suggests him to adopt the French pseudonym of "Marcoussis", inspired by a suburb of Paris near Montlhéry. Apollinaire's influence will never abandon him. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 50 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price.
