Letters, 1898-1904, n.d., to Gabriel Mourey.

The collection, arranged chronologically, consists of letters sent by Constantin Meunier to Gabriel Mourey dealing mostly with arrangements for exhibitions often in connection with the Cercle Artistique de Bruxelles or the Société Nouvelle. These arrangements include conditions, prices, lists of available works, and postal details. Besides his business with these groups, in April of 1900 he asks after works at the Petit and Bing Galleries, and expresses his favorable opinion of the Rodin banquet, and his concern for Théo van Rysselberghe's health. In a letter of December 1901, he praises Mourey's recent book on artists. A letter of 1903 contains an illustration of his preferred arrangement for the two watercolors and one pastel that he is sending. In two letters of 1904 he writes that he may be able to pay his share (possibly dues for an unidentified society) out of his profit from a sale that Mourey is arranging, but that he did not think it would be required of him because of family illness. In the course of these two letters, he also decides to no longer exhibit at salons.
