1/2 page text to recto with floor plan (by Loos?) in pencil to verso. Small octavo, 215 x 132 mm. Dated Mödling, near Vienna, February 7, 1919. Schoenberg's name and address handstamped in purple ink to upper left corner. In German (with translation).Schoenberg suggests an answer to the "call" of the French writer Henri Barbusse for his pacifist "Clarté" movement. He suggests times that he would be available for a possible meeting:"Dear Herr Loos, in my opinion we should react to Henri Barbusse's call that was in the papers of February 5. Ideally, the three of us: you, Kraus, and I. Would you like to discuss that with me?."Creased at folds and overall; minor remnants of archival paper mounting tape to verso. Unpublished (except for the incipit on the website of Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna). Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a famous early modern architect. "Kraus" is probably a reference to the writer and journalist Karl Kraus (1874-1936), a friend of both Loos and Schoenberg. Henri Barbusse (1873-1935) was a French writer, quite famous in his time; he founded the "Clarté" movement in 1919 together with Romain Rolland. Bookseller Inventory #
