Pellerin, Auguste
French, 1852 - 1929
Biography
Wealthy industrialist Auguste Pellerin is best known as a passionate collector of art, particularly of Manet and Cezanne. In 1919 he donated three works by the latter to the musées nationaux de France and in 1926 a large portion of his collection, mostly by Manet, were dispersed at auction. At his death in 1929 he left ninety-two Cezanne paintings to his son Jean-Victor and daughter Mme Réne Lecomte.
