About the book:

Ambroise Vollard (1867–1939) played a key role in the transformation of the art world in the late 19th century. A pioneering Parisian dealer, Vollard introduced many of the eras leading artists to the public. This beautifully illustrated catalogue, accompanying the first comprehensive exhibition devoted to Vollards extraordinary achievement, presents 130 important paintings, sculpture, and works on paper that he promoted, exhibited, and sold.
Vollards groundbreaking exhibition in 1895 of Cézannes work definitively established the artists reputation, and Vollard subsequently organized major exhibitions of the Nabis, Gauguin, and Van Gogh; promoted the work of artists ranging from Degas to Rouault to the Fauves; and gave many young artists, including Picasso and Matisse, their first solo shows.  In addition, Vollard published print albums and livres dartiste  that are among the most celebrated of the early 20th century. This important volume features twenty-two essays that examine Vollards career and expertise in the art market, his relationships with individual artists and collectors, and a wealth of previously unpublished material from the newly available archive of Vollards documents and from the archives of the artists he represented.
