The Doctors (4)
Dr. Paul Gachet
In 1873, Cézanne works in Auvers-sur-Oise and painted his famous Modern Olympia at the home of Dr. Gachet. The doctor was one of Cézanne’s first admirers and bought this work immediately. He lent it to the first Impressionists’ exhibition in 1874, where the press and the public were appalled by it.
Some time later, Dr. Gachet made copies of the Modern Olympia, one in pen-and-ink and this one in oil. He signed the copies with his artist name: Paul Van Ryssel. (Ryssel was the Flemish name for Lille, his town of birth in the north of France).
