Cézanne to Picasso: Ambroise Vollard, Patron of the Avant-Garde
February 17-May 12, 2007 www.artic.edu/aic/exhibitions/picasso/
In 1887 Ambroise Vollard (1866-1939) arrived in Paris with few contacts and no credentials to pursue a career as an art dealer. He began representing artists that were undervalued, exhibiting them at a time when many galleries were not willing to take the risk. In 1895 Vollard hosted Cézanne’s first solo exhibition, and in doing so he made the artist’s reputation as well as his own.
By the early 20th century, Vollard had become the principal dealer of artists such as Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, and a number of Fauve ! artists, and lent early support to artists who are well known today—Pierre Bonnard, Aristide Maillol, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Édouard Vuillard—as well as many who remain relatively unknown. His shrewd mind for business and artistic sense made him the leading contemporary art dealer of his generation.
The exhibition was organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Musée d’Orsay, Paris and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Paris. An indemnity for this exhibition has been granted by the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
