Bryson Burroughs


Henry Bryson Burroughs (8 September 1869 – November 1934) was an American artist and employee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He began there as an assistant to Curator of Paintings Roger Fry, and when Fry left in 1909, Burroughs assumed the role. His purchase of View of the Domaine Saint-Joseph for the museum became the first of Paul Cézanne's paintings to enter a public collection. He also purchased the Crucifixion and Last Judgement diptych and The Harvesters for the Met. Before dedicating himself to painting, Burroughs was a successful racing cyclist who seriously contemplated turning professional in that discipline.
