Fantastic art collection in a magnificent building.
Oct 2019
While on a walking tour of Toulouse we were introduced to the Bemberg Foundation art gallery in the refurbished Hôtel d’Assezat, were it has been housed since 1994.
The gallery is home to not only major European private collections, but also the personal collection of the wealthy Argentine Georges Bemberg, who donated paintings, drawings, sculptures, ancient books and furniture, and for whom the Collection is named after.

TIP: If you are not interested in art, at least check out the Hôtel d’Assezat court yard. (Its Free)

An extraordinary building, housing an impressive art collection
Jan 2020
The Fondation Bemberg is very well worth a visit. As soon as you walk into the courtyard your breath is taken away: the huge tower above this old palace (a status symbol in times of old - these people were definitely showing off with their tower!) and the wonderful rose tinted brick building around you is beautiful. Once inside you climb up to the first and second floors, for an excellent range of original art work - including sketches and paintings by Picasso, Gauguin, Sickert and many other well known artists. There is a whole area devoted to the Fauvist movement, and another for the Impressionists. The walls are pretty well crammed with art work, so you need to give yourself plenty of time to take in all you see.

An excellent, interestingly diversified and beautifully displayed private exhibition in Toulouse.
Dec 2018
This exhibition is one of the highlights of any visit to Toulouse, a lot of ancient art like paintings, sculpures and carpets, well displayed and organized.

A bit overrated
Oct 2019
It's nice but expected more. The space is on the dark side and access is all stairs so be prepared to exercise your knees.

Also known as Hotel d'Assezat
Oct 2019
From the entry salon with its 18c. furnishings and paintings by Rosalba, Romney, Guardi, Longhi, Canaletto, and Zuccarelli, you move to the Renaissance room, filled with ceramic (della Robbia, for example) and metal objects, and paintings by Veronese, Tintoretto, Breughel, and Cranach; then on to yet another 18c salon of diverse ornate decor and paintings (Boucher, Kauffman). On the next floor is 19c. and 20c. art.

A 'must-visit' for anyone interested in European art.
Oct 2019 • Couples
Unfortunately one of the best museums in Toulouse, the Musee des Augustins, was closed for refurbishment, but fortunately the Hotel d'Assezat, the Renaissance palace which houses the Bemberg Foundation was open, with its fine art collection with a host of artists from German 15th century and Venetian Renaissance through to Modern, with a few British artists including George Romney, Alfred Mummings and Walter Sickert.

Almost too many names to mention, the Collection includes Breugel, Cranach, Titian, Canaletto, Verenose, Monet, Bonnard, Rodin and Picasso.....

There is a helpful leaflet in English (and other languages) to guide you through this varied collection of over 400 years of European art.

Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting Museum
Sep 2019
We had fairly limited time in Toulouse, so this museum was a good choice as its relatively small. Besides paintings, there is interesting furniture and other objects d'art, its an interesting collection, but an hour is enough to see it all

Great museum in a gorgeous mansion
Sep 2019
Very nice art collection. Older works downstairs, modern (1870-1950) upstairs. The building itself is worth looking at.
