So British! Collection Pinault
Jun 5, 2019 – May 11, 2020
Musée des Beaux Arts Rouen
Rouen, France

Since its creation 30 years ago, the Pinault collection has grown quickly to become a major presence in the contemporary arts. This exhibition focuses on the British artists present in the collection. Artists include Nigel Cooke, Jonathan Wateridge, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Toby Ziegler, among others.

For this first collaboration, the Le Musée des Beaux Arts Rouen chose to focus on British artists present in the collection, gifting a contemporary extension to the existing links between Normandy and England since the Middle Age.

The Pinault Collection’s museums are housed in two exceptional buildings in Venice: Palazzo Grassi, inaugurated in 2006, and Punta della Dogana, opened in 2009.

Works in the Pinault Collection are also regularly presented in exhibitions across the world, including in Paris, Moscow, Lille, Essen and in Stockholm. Solicited by public and private institutions, the Pinault Collection loan many of its works to international exhibitions.
