Traveling September 14, 2006-September 16, 2007 to Three Venues

Cézanne to Picasso: Ambroise Vollard, Patron of the Avant-Garde is the first comprehensive exhibition devoted to the French art dealer and publisher Ambroise Vollard (1866–1939). The full exhibition contains some 100 paintings, along with ceramics, sculpture, prints, and livres d'artistes (limited-edition artists' books) commissioned and published by Vollard, all of which illustrate his superb eye, patronage of artists and unique place as a singular influence on Modern Art.

Included in this gallery is a selection of works from the much larger exhibition. Artists represented here are the painters Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Maurice de Vlaminck, André Derain, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Pierre Bonnard, and the photographer Thérèse Bonney.


After being steered towards it by Camille Pissarro, Henri Matisse bought this painting from Ambroise Vollard who, in turn, had acquired it directly from Paul Cézanne. Matisse could ill afford to spend money on other artists' works at the time but was so moved by this piece that he signed a promissory note to Vollard for 1,200 francs in December of 1899. He paid this debt off in installments.

Over the years, Three Bathers remained an immense inspiration and affirmation to Matisse. When he donated it to the Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris in 1936, he wrote this in a letter to art curator and author Raymond Escholier (1882-1971) on November 10 of that same year:

  • "In the thirty-seven years I have owned this canvas, I have come to know it quite well, though not entirely, I hope; it has sustained me morally in the critical moments of my venture as an artist; I have drawn from it my faith and my perseverance; for this reason, allow me to request that it be placed so that it may be seen to its best advantage...I know that I do not have to tell you this, but nevertheless think it is my duty to tell you so; please accept these remarks as the excusable testimony of my admiration for this work which has grown increasingly greater ever since I have owned it." [1]
