Alexis Rouart (Paris, 1839–Paris, 1911)

The son of an industrialist and the younger brother of Henri Rouart (1833-1912), whose collection of paintings (Delacroix, Millet, Degas, Corot) was already famous, Alexis Rouart himself amassed a remarkable collection of paintings and drawings by great masters of the 19th-century, as well as numerous objects from the Far East and a large selection of lithographs. His beautiful collection of lithographs was not included in the sale after his death, and went to one of his two sons, who sold them privately from 1930 to 1935.
