Très Cher Lincoln, Your memorial to a marriage and your sweet dedication will fascinate Martine and I. Nancy invited the 3 of us to the ballet, the strong elegance of Balanchine was there and behind all that your tremendous perséverance (I don't know the English word!) and enthousiasme communicatif. Have you received my drawing book, “line by line” Affectionately from both of us. Henry

Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004) was a French photographer, considered the father of photojournalism. In 1947, he founded the Magnum photo agency along with three colleagues and friends. He quickly won contracts from famous magazines such as Life, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar to travel and record unique images around the world. He photographed, for example, the last days of Gandhi.

In this letter, Henri Cartier-Bresson writes to the American choreographer and art collector Lincoln Kirstein (1907 - 1996). With Russian-American ballet master George Balanchine (1904 - 1983), mentioned in that letter, Kirstein founded the prestigious American Ballet School.
