Paul Durand-Ruel, a man of strong convictions, became an art dealer against his will. He spent his entire life supporting and promoting the painters he loved, despite incomprehension from the public and violent opposition from the official art milieus. Through his efforts, he earned recognition for the Barbizon painters, then the Impressionists, narrowly avoiding financial ruin several times. "Without Durand," Claude Monet later said, "we would have starved, all of the Impressionists. We owe him everything. He was stubborn, tenacious, he faced bankruptcy twenty times to support us. Critics dragged us through the mud; but for him it was worse! They wrote: 'These people are mad, but there is someone even crazier than they are, it's the dealer who buys their works.'"

Paul Durand-Ruels memoirs, first published in French in 1939, now translated into English and supplemented with contemporary and historical information, track his career as a patron and promoter of poverty-stricken and struggling impressionist artists of the fin-de-siècle period. The young collector and gallery owner supported them emotionally and financially, and relentlessly promoted works by the likes of Degas, Manet, and Milletworks now considered invaluable. His meticulous and detailed memoirs recount key events, from his grandparents desperate flight from the Terror in 1793, to his fathers early days collecting paintings to sell in his mothers stationery shop, to his own extensive records of purchases. Among Durand-Ruels notable acquisitions were modern paintings bought from Prince Napoléon at the Palais-Royal in 1867 and Rembrandts David and Saul, purchased for just 12,500 francs in 1869. The memoirs delve into the records of his momentous career, using detailed accounts of auctions to reflect societys changing opinion and increasing adoration of the impressionist artists that Durand-Ruel had championed.
