This exhibition provides an exploration of the life of a central figure in the impressionist movement: the coal magnate François Depeaux (1853-1920). This industrialist from Rouen owned almost 600 paintings and drawings, including as many as 55 by Sisley, 20 by Monet, as well as masterpieces by Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro… He was a visionary collector and the first to acquire one of the series of Cathedrals which he saw being born under Monet’s brush.
