Berthe Weill: Indomitable Art Dealer of the Parisian Avant-Garde (working title)
Spring 2023

Berthe Weill: Indomitable Art Dealer of the Parisian Avant-Garde surveys the groundbreaking career of the first modern woman art dealer. Berthe Weill (1865–1951) championed many fledgling masters of modern art early on—such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Amedeo Modigliani—as well as numerous others who did not achieve wide acclaim. The exhibition will feature approximately 80 artworks that were shown at her gallery during the first four decades of the 20th century. Examining her contributions to the history of modernism as a gallerist, a passionate advocate of contemporary art, and a Jew, it brings to light the remarkable achievements of a singular figure who overcame sexism and anti-Semitism in her quest to promote emerging artists. Co-organized by NYU’s Grey Art Gallery and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated publication.
