The Justin K. Thannhauser Collection

Hôtel de Caumont Art Centre presents masterpieces from the Justin K. Thannhauser Collection, which were bequeathed to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in New York in 1963.

Some fifty major works from this prestigious collection will be presented in Europe in a travelling exhibition that began at the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum: paintings and sculptures by the masters of Impressionism and post-Impressionism, but also by the most important figures in modern art, from Manet to Picasso, Degas, Gauguin, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Braque and Matisse.

The exhibition also offers the visitor the opportunity to reconstruct the history of the Thannhauser collection through photographs, inventory books and other archive documents that illustrate the relationships between the Thannhauser family and the avant-garde artists, collectors and dealers of the time.
