Subseries I. "Cézanne in Philadelphia Collections." June 19-Aug. 31, 1983


Scope and Content Note

Joseph Rishel, Curator of European Paintings before 1900, worked closely with the Barnes Foundation and several local private collectors to bring 45 works by Paul Cézanne to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This exhibition, which celebrates the extensive collections of Philadelphia-area institutions and individuals, revealed the city as one of the most impressive gathering places of the Cézanne's work. Records in this subseries are broken down into local collections and administrative files. Local collections document works included or considered for inclusion in the exhibition, and administrative files pertain to exhibition planning and implementation.
