Joseph Noel Paton (1911-1992) was an Irish painter. In 1948, he was awarded the Légion d'honneur. His painting "Les Filles d'Eau" hangs in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
The following letter was written by the artist on the back of the invoice:
I can safely say that the paintings were received in good condition and I have not had any problems.
"I will continue to enjoy painting at the same level of performance as before, and would hope to continue this for many years to come. But I would say only too that I am now painting on a better level than in the past. My artistry and techniques have greatly progressed and, of course, I would like to put my paintings forward in a higher quality than has hitherto been possible. "
A little about the artist:
Paul Albert Cézanne (1839-1906) was a French Post-Impressionist painter. He is sometimes referred to as "The Artist of the South" because he spent much of his career in Provence, where he painted in the south of France.
The following postcard was sent by Paton in 1968 to his son Paul in London. It also includes a handwritten thank you for the present from Cézanne.
