The Bemberg Foundation

The Hôtel d'Assézat is a Renaissance palace, or “hôtel particulier” in French, of the 16th century which houses the Bemberg Foundation since 1994, one of the largest private art galleries in Europe. Georges Bemberg, who past away in 2011, was an artist and writer himself and lived out his love of art by taking many pieces from all over Europe in his gallery.

Gallery

The gallery mostly contains paintings, works made out of bronze and Venetian sculptures from the 15th up until the 20th century. Moreover, antique books and pieces of furniture can be found here. Bemberg created the foundation to make these highlights of art visible for the public through art exhibitions.

The museum includes many works from famous artists such as Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso or Henri Matisse. There even is a little Café in the inner courtyard that surely invites one to stay. With the exhibition of these art works in the special premises of the Hôtel d'Assézat the organizers created a truly special museum within Toulouse that grew to become one of the most successful regional museums of France.
