Paul Durand-Ruel: Memoirs of the First Impressionist Art Dealer (1831-1922)
This extraordinary memoir of a visionary art dealer chronicles the emergence of the Impressionists and their controversial rise to success.
Paul Durand-Ruel’s memoirs, first published in French in 1939, now translated into English and supplemented with contemporary and historical information, track his career as a patron and promoter of poverty-stricken and struggling impressionist artists of the fin-de-siècle period. The young collector and gallery owner supported them emotionally and financially, and relentlessly promoted works by the likes of Degas, Manet, and Millet—works now considered invaluable.
The memoirs delve into the records of his momentous career, using detailed accounts of auctions to reflect society’s changing opinion and increasing adoration of the impressionist artists that Durand-Ruel had championed.
