In under ten years, the captain of industry and avid francophile used his immense wealth to acquire one of the most stunning collections of Impressionist art ever seen and played a decisive role in gaining recognition for Impressionism in the United Kingdom.

These works include "Un bar aux Folies Bergère" by Manet or "Les Joueurs de cartes" by Cézanne.
