Paul Guillaume (18911934) was a Parisian art dealer active in Paris during the two world wars. Guillaume died at the age of forty-two and had acquired an substantial private collection of works by leading modernists. Before him there had been similar dealers such as Paul Durand-Ruel and Ambroise Vollard.

He also held an important collection of African art and modern sculpture, a capsule of Parisian taste in the 1920s.

The French state acquired the collection in two consignments in 1959 and 1963 and housed it in the refurbished Musée de l'Orangerie. The collection has been on permanent display since 1984.
