A unique group of paintings, drawings, and prints, principally by Cézanne, Van Gogh, Pissarro, Monet, and Guillaumin, which were collected by Dr. Paul Gachet and now have their home in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, are published—many for the first time—in this catalogue that accompanied an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dr. Gachet, a physician, amateur artists, and colorful personality who counted the painters among his friends, comes to life in an essay describing his activities, his cultural milieu, and his relationships with numerous artists. The works themselves, along with copies of the paintings made in Gachet’s circle and memorabilia, are fully illustrated and discussed.
