Letter from Egon Schiele to Anton Peschka
28th May 1915
(Tulln 1890–1918 Vienna)
(Vienna 1885–1940 Vienna)
May 28, 1915
Dear A.P. [Anton Peschka],
I have just received your letter. I’ll see to it as soon as possible – write immediately if you have this letter and always write to me where you are – also write immediately what Court Councilor Leisching answered or sent. – Yesterday Gerti took two black drawings for you – I don’t have any colored ones – should you again or still need a colored one, however, just write for it. – Amongst other things, I was bold enough and gifted my wife’s sister your picture that you had sitting with me (with yellow sky, a purple mountain in the middle, mountains to the left and right, and branches centered in the front) because she liked it so much. If we see each other after the war you will get 150 K [Kronen] from me. You already know that I am being examined now. – I wish you the best of luck should you get away. – You will think of me once in a while, as I do, and write to me from the front? I am sending you my view, what it looks like here now.
Warm greetings! Hurray!
To Mr. Anton Peschka
One-year volunteer of the Infantry Regiment 42
