When Oskar Reinhart (1885 1965) bequeathed a significant part of his remarkable art collection chiefly French 19th-century painting but also a number of outstanding Old Masters to Switzerland, he did so on condition that the works of art would never be loaned. This volume, with full entries on the entire collection of 207 works by 45 leading international scholars and superb plates, makes these works available to the world. Artists represented by several works in the collection that Reinhart made his monument include: Cezanne (11), Chardin (4), Corot (9), Courbet (10), Daumier (20), Delacroix (9), Gericault (2), Van Gogh (5), Maillol (8), Manet (4), Picasso (4), Pissarro (2), Renoir (15), and Sisley (2). A well illustrated introduction explains the ideas and context behind Reinhart's collecting and affords insights into his character.
