Mauriac, Francois (1885 – 1970)

A scarce early signed and inscribed 3.5″ X 5.5″ portrait by Francois Mauriac.

A soulful portrait of the author signed very clearly in fountain pen ink. He incorporates in his inscription a reference to a forest — perhaps a reference to the forests that appear in his most enduring work Thérèse Desqueyroux. In very fine condition.
