Overall visit

The exhibition retraces the singular journey of Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), one of the great art dealers of the first half of the 20th century. It brings together more than sixty masterpieces of modern art, some of them never seen before in France (Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Marie Laurencin ...) and from the largest public and private collections of Europe. Many works are directly linked to the merchant, having gone through his galleries in Paris or New York, while others reference the historical and artistic context of the time.

Petit bijou

J'étais triste d'avoir raté cette belle exposition à Liège l'année passée. Quel plaisir de pourvoir se rattraper à Paris dans le très intimiste musée Maillol. Bien documentée, instructive, variée et émouvante, cette exposition raconte en images une histoire dans l'Histoire. À ne pas rater!

Excellente surprise que cette visite au musée !La qualité des œuvres est remarquable et la narration est super fluide. Pas trop long non plus: en une heure on a le temps de tout observer attentivement. Tableau préféré : le portrait d'Anne Sinclair par Marie Laurencin. Super expo. Merci de l'avoir recommandée !

A real story behind this one

Turns out I enjoy exhibits about art dealers. This one had a story to tell and since it involved some of the most famous artists of our time there was plenty to see too. It was fun.

Collection Paul Rosenberg
17 May, 2017

Il vaut mieux lire "21 rue de la Boétie" de sa petite fille Anne Sinclair avant d'aller admirer ce promoteur infatigable de l'Art moderne!ses peintres fétiches Picasso, Braque, Laurencin , Leger sont largement représentés et ce, malgré la large spoliation pendant la seconde guerre mondiale... Paul Rosenberg a l’œil expérimenté et éclectique, il a eu une très belle carrière en tant que marché d'art. Allez y , on se régale!

An awesome one!

From the very beginning to the end, this exhibit is well documented, interesting, with dozens of masterpieces especially from Picasso, Léger, Laurencin, Braque and Matisse - Rosenberg's favorite artists and "protégés". It is really clear about how Rosenberg built his fortune and collection, how he chose his art pieces and found his clients, and how he managed his business and classified his paintings. The part about world war II, what happened to Rosenberg's collection, and all about the Nazis' "degenerate art" exhibition and the propaganda for the "pure German art" is captivating. So it's an absolute GO. Just a negative point, It's all in French so you'll have to take the audio guide if you don't understand this language.
