Summary
"This illustrated book features ninety-four works from Alfred Bruyas's celebrated collection, including nine masterpieces by Courbet as well as important paintings, drawings, and sculptures by such leading French artists of the period as Delacroix, Ingres, Gericault, Millet, Corot, Rousseau, and Barye. The accompanying texts, written by a team of international scholars and drawing upon a wealth of unpublished correspondence between Bruyas, his advisors, and the artists whose work he collected, examine Bruyas's role as one of the few mid-nineteenth-century private collectors of contemporary art and the significance of his patronage of living artists. In addition, the well-known but little-scrutinized relationship between Bruyas and Courbet is also examined in depth. A newly discovered critique of the renowned collection, written by the influential artist Paul Signac some twenty years after Bruyas's death, is also presented."--Jacket
