This art collection concentrates on two very different figureheads of classical modernism: exuberant Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) and quiet, intense Paul Klee (1879 - 1940), the latter of Swiss origins. The basement is entirely dedicated to Klee's mostly small-scale, delicate works, while the ground floor houses a collection of Picassos from all periods of his work. The final, upper floor displays other modernist artists such as Chagall or Braque as well as some Picasso prints including some of Angela Rosengart. She is the founder of the museum and, like her father, she had a long and intense friendship with Picasso. Her father Siegfried Rosengart was an art dealer who confessed that it pained him to sell pieces he loved, and Angela who worked with him from 1957 on and still lives in Lucerne today had the same failing - luckily. A gem among Lucerne's museums. Notes on the works are available in German, English and French.
Open 10:00 - 18:00, Nov - March 11:00 - 17:00.
