Ernest Rouart was one of the five children on Henri Rouart [1833-1912], an engineer, collector and artist. Henri was intimately involved with the Impressionist painters, especially Degas, whose Dancers at the Bar, now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he once owned. Henri exhibited in all the official Salons between 1868-1872 as well as with the Impressionists from 1876-1996 (except 1882). Ernest Rouart was married to Julie Manet [1879-1966], daughter of Berthe Morisot, and with his siblings (Hélène, Alexis, Eugène, and Louis) inherited his father's collection. The children retained some family portraits and dispersed the remainder of the Rouart collection at auctions in Paris in December 1912 and April 1913.
