César Mange de Hauke


Who was César Mange de Hauke (1900-1965)?

What was the role of this French art dealer in bringing European artworks to America?
Which artists did he handle?
Who were his clients?
Why did the Art Looting Investigation Unit put him on the Red Flag List?

de Haucke, Cesar Monge. Paris, 14 rue du Cherche-Midi. Dealer active in Paris and New York before the war. Active in Paris during the occupation; in contact with Wuester, Haberstock and Hofer; documentary evidence in Unit files.


In this post we take a look at some of Hauke's (Haucke's) transactions in the Knoedler files at the Getty Provenance Index.


Paper archives are not included which means that the information presented here represents  only a very limited, incomplete view.

2. GPI Knoedler Ledgers, search on "Hauke"

The Knoedler ledgers can be quite difficult to read because multiple transactions involving the same art work can take place over time, with bits and pieces of the artwork's history popping up in different ledgers.

Sometimes, the seller is not mentioned. So it can be useful to look at several transactions to see who the original seller was. 

In the table below, we merged information from transactions that share the same Knoedler number, in an attempt to bring buyer and seller together:

(Accession Date: May 5, 1937);NOTES;[1] The early provenance and information about Durand-Ruel's transactions is taken from Colin B. Bailey, Renoir, Impressionism, and Full-Length Painting (exh. cat. Frick Collection, New York, 2012), p. 212.;[2] Maurice Barret-Décap owned the painting until at least February 9, 1937, as his correspondence with Seligmann attests. The provenance provided by Seligmann at the time of the painting's acquisition lists the name of Anthony Manley after that of Barret-Décap. The gallery's shipping papers from March 19, 1937, note that it was purchased from Manley on February 13 (year illegible, presumably 1937), Manley also wrote to Seligmann on April 3, 1937, regarding the payment of interest on the painting. It is possible that Barret-Décap sold the work to Seligmann through Manley, that the two men owned it jointly, or that Manley owned the work for a very short period of time, around February 9-13, 1937.;[3] De Hauke was a sales representative for Jacques Seligmann and Co. While he purchased works of art that were sold by the gallery, the ownership of the objects was often officially shared by several art dealers, and the transactions became quite complicated. De Hauke and Brame worked together on several occasions.37.375

In “George Seurat” (Editions Albin Michel, Paris, 1948), John Rewald lists the drawing as belonging to the Curt Valentin Collection, New York. A label, formerly on the back of the drawing’s frame from the Buchholz Gallery seems to confirm this provenance.;2. The drawing is listed in the 1942-1943 stock catalogs of Jacques Seligmann & Co., New York, indicating that it was with this dealer by that time.;3. Lois Orswell placed the drawing on deposit at the Fogg Art Museum from 1953 to 1955 (see Orswell catalogue pp. 372, 374).

The drawing was listed in the 1936 “Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Handbook” (third edition, p. 160) as being in the Paul J. Sachs collection.;2. The drawing is listed as number 6462 in the Jacques Seligmann & Co. stock catalogue from 1937-1938 (Jacques Seligmann & Co. archives, Archives of American Art online). The entry is crossed out, possibly indicating that the drawing was sold during this time (see note 3).;3. In a night letter dated November 9, 1937 C.M. de Hauke of Jacques Seligmann & Co. notifies Paul J. Sachs that he sold the “Cezanne watercolor” to Henry McIlhenny. This almost certainly refers to the drawing in question, as Sachs expressed interest in selling the work in correspondence with Seligmann & Co. predating this letter (Jacques Seligmann & Co. archives, Archives of American Art online). In addition, in a memo dated July 17, 1988, Agnes Mongan of the Fogg Art Museum recalls that Paul Sachs had been eager to sell the watercolor. She specifies that the offer to McIlhenny was made with the understanding that he would bequeath the work to the Fogg upon his death.1.957.204
