Louisine Havemeyer and her husband, Henry Osborne Havemeyer, were pioneering American patrons of art at the end of the last century. They assembled a collection of works by 19th-century French artists, as well as paintings by Rembrandt, El Greco and other old masters. This volume accompanies a recent exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, that brought together works from Mrs Havemeyer's 1929 bequest to the museum, from other gifts made to the museum while the Havemeyers were alive, and important pieces that remained in private hands or were given to other institutions, offering an opportunity to explore a broad sampling of the collection formed by this famous couple.
