The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
On view from June 27 through September 19 at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the exhibition Monet to Matisse: Impressionism to Modernism from the Bemberg Foundation honors the extraordinary art collection of late philanthropist Georges Bemberg, which is housed in the South of France at the Renaissance Hôtel d’Assézat in Toulouse. Visitors can expect to see nearly 90 paintings and works on paper illustrating the progression of French painting movements ranging from impressionism and post-impressionism to symbolism and fauvism. The greatest French artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries will be on display, including Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Paul Cézanne, Henri Fantin-Latour and Paul Gauguin. “Georges Bemberg followed his keen eye and personal enthusiasm for French painting when assembling this magnificent collection,” says the museum’s director, Gary Tinterow. “It’s a privilege to be one of the few venues in the world to share these exceptional works and introduce visitors to Mr. Bemberg’s artistic approach to collecting.”
