Without the help and support of collectors, dealers, & representation, we artists would be a sorry bunch indeed. Ones of the big names, (Paul Durand Ruel) getting some recognition in London. As a dealer he was responsible for aiding the likes of Monet, Manet, Pissarro and Degas. Selling and promoting their work, giving it an national stage.
A major show at the National in London is running, with works he bought and sold of these and more artists.
