historical notes Joseph Brummer was a giant in the field of art collecting in the first half of the 20th century.

A sculptor who had trained under Rodin, he subsequently opened art galleries in Paris and New York and advised such important collectors as Henry Walters, William Randolph Hearst and Bradley Martin.

He was one of the experts involved in the founding of The Cloisters, and his gallery exhibitions brought the works of Seurat, Derain and other modern artists to America.

He was married to Beata Brummer.
