Subseries . "Cezanne." May 30-Sep. 1, 1996


Scope and Content Note

The Philadelphia Museum of Art collaborated with the Réunion de Musées Nationaux / Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Tate Gallery in London to organize a retrospective exhibition of works by Paul Cezanne. An unprecedented gathering of some 100 oil paintings, 35 watercolors, and 35 drawings were drawn together from public and private collections. Joseph J. Rishel, Senior Curator of European Painting before 1900 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Françoise Cachin, director of Musées de France, were the primary curators of this exhibition. Contents include files relating to administration, research, lenders, and publicity.


Files are arranged into four sub-subseries in accordance with the order in which they were originally arranged when transferred from the curatorial department.
