DVD Paul Durand-Ruel, the Impressionist's art dealer
Paul Durand Ruel is not the only man to have showcased talent, but he is one of the few who has done it using original methods, avant-garde for their time, methods that are still used in the contemporary art market...
It is thanks to his dedication and enthusiasm, and his support for artists such as Manet, Monet and Degas, that Impressionism was able to develop and prosper. History has proved that Ruel's taste for this type of art was more than justified, and now the works of Impressionist painters feature strongly in the collections of all the world's major museums.
The story of his wonderful adventure is recounted by his descendants, along with analyses from specialists in the art world; historians and dealers who regard Paul Durand Ruel as a genuine prophet in the field of fine art.
The Present truly does enlighten the Past.
