In the 1890s, Maufra was one of the artists of Galerie Durand-Ruel, the major dealer for the Impressionists. Durand-Ruel’s artists included Cassatt, Degas, Guillaumin, Lebourg, Maufra, Monet, Moret, Pissarro, Renoir and Sisley. Maufra’s representation was taken over at a later date by Durand-Ruel’s leading competitor, Georges Petit, whose gallery also had previously obtained Sisley’s contract in 1888 and eventually was to handle other impressionist artists including Monet. Galerie Georges Petit published Arsène Alexandre’s book, Maxime Maufra in 1926.
