Catalogue Note

Joseph Duveen (1869-1939) was one of the most successful art dealers to have ever lived. He forged a highly successful and lucrative career in the art trade exporting objects from Europe to America. He once quipped that he was successful because  "Europe has a great deal of art, and America has a great deal of money". He was instrumental in creating the Frick collection in New York and the Mellon and Kress collections in Washington. The works he exported to this day make up the core of American Museum collections.
