Cezanne and the Modern: Masterpieces of European Art from the Pearlman Collection, a Major Traveling Exhibition Organized by the Princeton University Art Museum, Begins Five-Venue International Tour in March 2014

Cézanne. Van Gogh. Modigliani. How did a relatively modest American entrepreneur named Henry Pearlman (1895–1974) amass such an astonishing collection of modern art—including perhaps the greatest collection of watercolors by Cézanne outside of France—while competing against the high rollers of his day? Through ingenuity, tenacity and sheer luck. The result of Pearlman’s extraordinary vision—the Henry and Rose Pearlman Collection—will be on view in a major international traveling exhibition that showcases 50 modern masterworks from the late 19th through early 20th centuries. Cézanne and the Modern: Masterpieces of European Art from the Pearlman Collection, organized by the Princeton University Art Museum (where the collection has resided since 1976), debuts at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Oxford in England on March 13, 2014, with subsequent stops in France, Canada and the U.S. before culminating in Princeton, its final venue. This is the first international tour of the entire collection since Henry Pearlman’s death. See all
