Impressionism to Modernism: Monet to Matisse celebrates the art collection assembled by Georges Bemberg and now housed in southern France at the Renaissance Hôtel d’Assézat in Toulouse. Bemberg (1915–2011) was a writer and pianist who was born in Argentina and grew up in Paris, and his collection is rarely exhibited elsewhere.
The Bemberg Collection comprises paintings, drawings, and bronzes spanning the 14th century to the 20th century. The Modern French paintings offer a panorama of the main currents of the late 19th and early 20th centuries: Impressionism, Pointillism, Symbolism, and Fauvism.
These works of art reflect Bemberg’s enthusiasm for the great masters of the French School. Among the artists represented in the exhibition are Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Odilon Redon, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Signac, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Édouard Vuillard.
