(1870-1941) and Gaston Bernheim de Villers
(1970-1953) – art dealers, heirs to their father, the famous art dealer Alexandre Bernheim (1833-1915), who promoted the first generation of Impressionists, mainly Monet
, who were friends of the family. After 1900 the brothers supported and marketed Van Gogh
and some of the Post-Impressionists, members of the Nabis group among them. Bonnard had his first one-man exhibition at their gallery in 1906; thereafter he exhibited annually until the First World War.
