Catalogue Note

The letters are in French, except for one postcard in Polish. Kisling expresses in a very poignant way how difficult life in Paris had become for him as an artist without a regular income, particularly now after the birth of his first child, admitting his fear that his situation might even deteriorate after the birth of his second child which is why he decided to move to the French Riviera to save money (undated letter from Var).
