Erik Satie

French composer, 1866-1925

Satie was a colourful figure in the early 20th century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd. From 1919, Satie was in contact with Tristan Tzara, the initiator of the Dada movement. He became acquainted with other artists involved in the movement, such as Francis Picabia (later to become a Surrealist), André Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Hugo and Man Ray, among others. In addition to his body of music, Satie also left a remarkable set of writings, having contributed work for a range of publications, from the dadaist 391 to the American culture chronicle Vanity Fair.

Deux lettres autographes signées, au Dr. Louis Lemonnier.

To Dr. Louis Lemonnier: "My good Monsieur Louis - Thank you for the five hundred francs that you have sent, to my account succession Fortin, dated 19th of this month. So, I owe you to this day, one thousand three hundred twenty francs (1,320 f.), that is to say: Overdue 300 (three hundred) 1st remittance (September 1905) 500 (five hundred) Remitted in Paris 20 (twenty) 2nd remittance (October 1905) 500 (five hundred) [altogether:] 1,320 francs. Yesterday, Monsieur Tornare had a fall in his kitchen. Doctor Durand came to see him. It is nothing. It is a type of congestion that made him in that state: his heart must have skipped a beat. It is though to be his fault. Madame Tornare reproaches him for not knowing how to cough to his advantage [profitably in text]; she explains that in details to him and with illustration [spot], but him, seated at his counter, looks at her with unintelligent big eyes expressing true regret for not being able to understand such simple theme. - 'But look at me', disagreeably shouts to him Madame Tornare. And him, still looks at the one he loves, hoping, no doubt, that his poor brain will shed light. Of course, Madame is not satisfied, and judges him inferior: - 'But look at me'. Then drily, harsh toned: - 'When you do not know how to cough nor look, don't talk'. Madame Tornare is a bitter Madame Geng, with no literature or philosophy […]" (22 Oct. 1905). - "My good old man - Very chic. You can send the rest, that is to say seven hundred francs. Please deduct, expense for sending the money, I wish to pay for it. It is the least. Thanks for all you have done [fold] for me. You are a good fellow, very nice and kind. Thanks again. My respects to Madame Lemonnier" (2 Nov. 1905).
