Galerie Paul Prouté

The Parisian art dealer Paul Prouté and his son Hubert were essential contacts for Fred Grunwald beginning in the early 1950s. Grunwald was one of only three clients on whom Hubert kept a detailed sales ledger, viewable here replete with special markings that denote the gallery's confidential pricing system. Prouté was instrumental in cultivating Grunwald's taste for French modernist works on paper, as well as influencing the overall direction of his collecting practices in the postwar period.
