historical notes Daniel Henry Kahnweiler was a German art dealer, publisher, writer, who established a gallery in Paris in 1907 and became one of the most influential dealers of the Paris School, particularly Picasso and Braque.

Exiled in Switzerland during World War I, his collections were sequestered and sold by the French government at the end of the war.

Returning to Paris in 1920, Kahnweiler reopened his gallery, known as galerie Simon after his partner André Simon.

In 1940 Simon, a Jew, turned his gallery over to his daughter-in-law Louise Leiris, who ran the gallery as galerie Louise Leiris.
