"Impressionism to Modernism: Monet to Matisse from the Bemberg Collection" at MFA Houston.

The art collection assembled by George Bemberg and now housed in southern France at the Renaissance Hôtel d'Assézat in Toulouse is rarely exhibited elsewhere. The collection comprises paintings, drawings and bronzes spanning the 14th century to the 20th centuries. The Modern French paintings offer a panorama of the main currents of the late 19th century and early 2oth centuries: Impressionism, Pointillism, Symbolism, and Fauvism.
