Paul Durand-Ruel: Friend and Art Dealer

Paul Durand-Ruel:  Friend and Art Dealer of the Romantic Artisits, the Barbizon School, and the Impressionists

Paul Durand-Ruel was a visionary, discovering young artists such as Daubigny, Monet, and Degas, and redefining the role of the professional art dealer.  This talk will detail his influence, led by art historian and great-great-granddaughter of Durand-Ruel, Flavie Durand-Ruel.

During his lifetime, Paul Durand-Ruel (31 October 1831 – 5 February 1922) profoundly altered the traditional role of the art dealer with his unwavering and absolute dedication to his artists, both financially and morally. A determined and ambitious entrepreneur, Paul Durand-Ruel became a precursor on the international art market, establishing a network of galleries in Paris, London, Brussels and New York and organizing numerous international exhibitions. Completely convinced by the talent of the artists he promoted and confident in his role as the defender of their art, Paul Durand-Ruel was able to secure a legacy for the Barbizon school and, above all, the Impressionists.
