Designed in 1555 for the rich pastel merchant, Pierre Assezat, this beautiful private mansion in Toulouse has been superbly restored. It now houses the personal collection of Georges Bemberg. While paintings have pride of place, there are also bronze sculptures and other objects on display. The collection, which dates mainly from the 17th century and the Renaissance features European schools, including work by François Clouet, Cranach, Pieter de Hooch, Pourbus and du Tintoret. The French modern movement is also represented with pieces by Manet, Picasso, Dufy, Vlaminck, etc.
This collection of art is a true find. It was almost next door to hotel Beuxs-Arts at the Pont Neuf.
It is very well organized, Paintings are shown in what was an old mansion. The collection is very deep. especially in impressionism.
Worth a trip out of the way to visit.
