historical notes Vollard was a dealer and patron of French artists working in Paris during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

When he died in 1939, his large collection of paintings was divided between his heirs. In April 1940, Vollard’s executor, the dealer Martin Fabiani, shipped 560 paintings from his collection to the United States. The shipment was intercepted by the British in Bermuda as enemy property and stored at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, during the war. For inventory of paintings shipped see NARA.
