Room Carlos Besteigui Collection

Sully wing - 2nd floor - Room A - Carlos de Beistegui Donation

German painting

This room is devoted to the donation made by Carlos de Beistegui (Mexico, 1863–Biarritz, 1953). The donation was made in 1942 and the works entered the museum on the donor's death. This admirable collection of paintings consists chiefly portraits, and includes works by the 15th-century Burgundian Master, Hey, Rubens, van Dyck, Largillierre, Nattier, Drouias, Fragonard, Goya, David, Lawrence, Gérard, Ingres, Meissonnier, and Zuloaga. Carlos de Beistegui often followed the advice of the Louvre's curators when acquiring paintings that he was intending to donate to the museum.
