Lot 685: Important French poet, painter, writer, and critic (1876-1944) who converted from Judaism to Catholicism at age 39. AMS in French, three pages, 10.5 x 8, no date but circa 1928. Jacob's draft for a poem entitled "A un Sculpteur," written in honor of Spanish sculptor Apel Fenosa for his personal exhibition in Paris at Zborowski's gallery in 1928. In part (translated): "Fenosa has understood the great lesson of the Dionysian joy in the flesh. If it suppresses impulses is a new love that flesh that deifies the purity of modeling. O vases, O faces, O splendor!" In very good condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, small tears and punctures along folds of the last page, scattered creases, and various edge tears.
