Museum Berggruen - private collections

Since 1996, Museum Berggruen in Berlin has housed the paintings and sculptures once belonging to Heinz Berggruen and is one of the most important private collections in the world. It features remarkable pieces by acclaimed artists in the classical modernism style.

One of the premier venues on the international art scene
Museum Berggruen in the Western Stüler Building opposite Charlottenburg Palace is one of the leading lights on the international art scene. The private collection of Heinz Berggruen, one of the most successful art collectors in Europe, is displayed in the museum with classical modern paintings and sculptures. This is one of the most important private collections in the world, featuring works by Picasso, Klee, Braque, Laurens, Matisse and Giacometti. “Standing Woman III” by Giacometti in 1960, a final present from Berggruen to the Foundation, is one of the highlights of the museum and one of Giacometti's most important works.

An exhibition entitled “Picasso and his time” displays paintings, sculptures and drawings over three floors. More than 100 works by Picasso are on show, starting with pieces from his student days in 1897 and ending with his works from the 1960s and 1970s. The Blue Period (1901-1904) and Pink Period (1904-1906) are represented, as are the periods of cubism and classicism. Paul Klee is also highly featured with over 60 works.
