Durand-Ruel and the Rise of Impressionism
Tuesday, September 9  
11am–noon  
Paul Durand-Ruel, the famous Parisian art dealer who shaped the 20th-century art market, was crucial to the formation of the legendary Barnes collection. Between 1912 and 1920, Barnes purchased over 100 paintings from the dealer and his sons, including many works by Cézanne, Degas, and Renoir. Barnes traveled regularly to the Durand-Ruel galleries in New York and Paris, scouring their exhibitions in search of new acquisitions. Explore important impressionist works that made their way into the Barnes collection through this visionary dealer.
