Chester Dale (1883-1962) is best known for the magnificent paintings he bequeathed to the National Gallery of Art, which he acquired with the expert guidance of his first wife, Maud (1876-1953). They assembled one of the finest collections in America of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century paintings. Featuring great masterpieces of French impressionism and post-impressionism by such artists as Degas, Renoir, Cezanne, and Van Gogh, the Dale collection also includes earlier paintings that influenced these works as well as those that followed. Particular favorites of the Dales were Picasso and Modigliani, but they collected expansively--from El Greco and Boucher to George Bellows and Salvador Dali. This lavishly illustrated volume celebrates the Chester Dale Collection at the National Gallery. Two essays and a detailed chronology document the building of the collection and the lives of the collectors, and a dramatic foldout provides a graphic presentation of the Dales' acquisition activity.
