Published in conjunction with the exhibition From Renoir to Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée de l’Orangerie, this catalogue recounts the fascinating history of the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume Collection, an outstanding ensemble of works by the great masters of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century painting.

Now housed at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, this collection was assembled by the renowned French art dealer and collector Paul Guillaume, a bold visionary and fervent champion of the art of the avant-garde in his time.
