The Bemberg Foundation
Anyone can visit the interior of the Hôtel d’Assézat because a large part of this exceptional building is given over to a museum displaying the splendid art collection of a rich Argentinian, Georges Bemberg. This includes works by Tintoretto, Monet, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso.
I have enjoyed several visits to the Bemberg myself, but please note that at the time of writing, it is closed for refurbishment and is expected to re-open early in 2023.
A more detailed explanation of the pastel trade, past and present, can be found in my book Lauragais.
