Winter Landscape, Giverny

Paul Cézanne, French, 1839 - 1906

Object Details
Gift from the artist to Mme. Baudy, Giverny, 1894 [1]. Frank C. Osborn (1887-1948), Dobbs Ferry, NY, possibly before 1934 [2]; by inheritance to his wife Alice Newton Osborn (1888-1965), Manchester, VT, until d. 1965 [3]; bequest to PMA, 1966.1. Owner of an inn at Giverny where Cézanne stayed between September 7-30, 1894. The painting was given to her as compensation, and she is reported to have sold it (see Vienna, Kunstforum, "Cézanne: Finished-Unfinished," exh. cat., January 20-April 25, 2000, no. 86, p. 294). Rivière, Le Maître Paul Cezanne, 1923, p. 206, and Cézanne: le peintre solitaire, 1933, p. 178, listed the painting as "coll. Pellerin" (i.e., Auguste Pellerin, 1852-1929), apparently in error.2. The date of acquisition is unknown; however, a label on the back of the painting states that it is the property of Frank Osborn and gives his address as Dobbs Ferry, NY. Since Osborn moved permanently to Manchester, VT, c. 1933 (see letter to Carl Zigrosser, July 26, 1933, in registrar file), he probably purchased the painting around or prior to that date. 3. The painting was on loan at the museum from 1959 onward, according to PMA Bulletin, Summer 1966, p. 81.
