The Musée des Beaux Arts Rouen hosts the Pinault Collection. Few months before the opening of the Bourse de Commerce, future exhibition location of the institution in the heart of Paris, this partnership will show an exclusive side of Rouen’s patrimony.

Since its creation 30 years ago, the Pinault collection never ceased to grow and quickly became a major actor in the contemporary art scene. Rich from work of the greatest artist of our time and regularly presented to the Palazzo Grassi and to the Pointe de la Douane in Venice, the Pinault collection ranks among the most important and dynamic contemporary art collection in the world.

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.

François Pinault has channeled his passion for contemporary into assembling one of the most important collections in the world today: it now includes more than three thousand works from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His approach is fed by his commitment to sharing his passion for art with as broad an audience as possible, and to accompanying artists as they explore new territories.

Since 2006, François Pinault has oriented his cultural project along three axes: presenting exhibitions in Venice, in other institutions and supporting and encouraging up-and-coming artists and art historians.

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.

In 2020, the new museum of the Pinault Collection will open in Paris, inside the Bourse de Commerce.
