Lot 503: ALS in French, signed "Miro," one page on a 5.5 x 3.5 postcard depicting farmers with their oxen, June 1, 1935. Letter to Belgian painter Alice Frey. In full (translated): "Thank you, dear friend, for your kindness in letting me know about the review, with the beautiful reproductions and the interesting article by your husband. Leaving this week for Paris and 99 days too late, before returning to Brussels." In fine condition, with postmark ink affecting a portion of Miro's writing. Alice Frey and her husband, art critic Georges Marlier, were early members of the 1920s avant-garde movement in Belgium, forming part of a group known as Lumiere that published multiple art journals. Early on, Frey painted in the expressionist style, with her later works influenced by the magical realism associated with much of Miro's early body of work.
