DEPUIS LE 02 Feb 2024



The Fondation Bemberg is delighted to announce the reopening of its museum in the Hôtel d'Assézat, one of Toulouse's finest Renaissance monuments, after more than three years of renovation work. This major project, entrusted to architect Philippe Pumain, involved refurbishing the museum's spaces in a building that was listed as a historic monument in 1914, renewing the museography and creating new areas dedicated to temporary exhibitions. Reception conditions have also been reviewed, with the addition of a ticket office-shop and special access for people with reduced mobility.

Created in 1995, the Fondation Bemberg is dedicated to conserving and presenting the art collection of Georges Bemberg (1915-2011), the son of an Argentinian industrialist family.

The Foundation offers visitors a remarkable collection of paintings and sculptures, objets d'art and furniture dating from the Renaissance to the Second World War, a living image of the taste of a great 20th-century collector. A truly enlightened connoisseur, Mr Bemberg was guided only by his own aesthetic emotions, which drew him to both ancient art and the avant-gardes of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
