The Jean Walter-Paul Guillaume Collection

The Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume collection is one of the finest European collections of paintings. It comprises 146 works, from the 1860s to the 1930s, collected for the most part by Paul Guillaume, an impassioned young French art dealer. From 1914 until his death in 1934, he amassed an extraordinary collection of several hundred paintings, from Impressionism to Modern Art, along with pieces of African art. When he died, at the height of his career, rich and famous throughout Europe and in America, he was planning to found a museum. His widow Domenica, remarried to the architect Jean Walter, transformed and reduced the collection while also making new acquisitions. She wanted to name the collection after both her husbands when the French State acquired it in the late 1950s. From then on, the collection was destined for display at the Musée de l'Orangerie.

Currently, it comprises 25 works by Renoir, 15 by Cézanne, 1 each by Gauguin, Monet and Sisley, all from the Impressionist period.

From the 20th century, the museum boasts 12 works by Picasso, 10 by Matisse, 5 by Modigliani, 5 by Marie Laurencin, 9 by Douanier Rousseau, 29 by Derain, 10 by Utrillo, 22 by Soutine and 1 by Van Dongen.
