  • Provenance

    Acquired by Fritz and Lilly Cassirer, Berlin, prior to 1926

    By descent to the present owner

    Fritz Cassirer was the brother of the
    prominent art dealer Bruno Cassirer and his cousin and business partner Paul
    Cassirer. Their Berlin gallery was instrumental in promoting the artists of
    the Berlin Secession and the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, in
    particular Van Gogh and Cézanne. The present impression ofLes
    Baigneurswas acquired by Fritz prior to his death in 1926, and was brought
    to Oxford, England during World War II by Fritz's widow Lilly and her second
    husband, the eminent physician and head of internal medicine at the Schwabinger
    Hospital in Munich, Professor Otto Neubauer. Upon Neubauer's death in 1957,
    Lilly Cassirer moved to the United States, bringing the Cézanne with her, and
    the work has remained in the family ever since.
