by JEU DE PAUME
34 pp. 8vo (215 x 136 mm.), orig. pictorial wrappers (corners a trifle worn), staple-bound. [Paris]: Editions des Musées Nationaux, 1951. The updated French edition of this scarce museum catalogue. The Jeu de Paume was opened in 1947 for the exhibition of Impressionist artworks. Its earliest shows were organized by René Huyghe (1906-97), paintings curator at the Louvre, and one of the figures responsible for the safeguarding of France's artistic treasures during the German occupation. Huyghe's assistant curator, Jean Leymarie (1919-2006), edited the present catalogue. It proceeds room by room, updating earlier versions of the catalogue with the new arrangement of pictures. In very good condition; staples rusted and edges a bit worn. (Inventory #: 7411)
