The earliest collectors of Cézanne’s work were his artist colleagues,* Paul Gauguin, Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, among others.

They in turn encouraged new collectors* in their immediate circle – Count Isaac de Camondo, Victor Chocquet, Egisto Fabbri, and more.

As Cézanne’s reputation spread, so did the number of collectors who amassed a significant number of his paintings, Cornelis Hoogendijk, Auguste Pellerin, Sergei Shchukin.

Cézanne’s paintings are housed in public collections throughout the world, in the United States, France, Switzerland, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Germany, to name a few.

The largest assemblage of the artist’s canvases is in the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, followed by the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
