Description Berggruen Museum

The Berggruen Collection focuses on the works of two famous artists: Pablo Picasso and Paul Klee. In the “Picasso and His Time” exhibition, visitors can admire his paintings, sculptures, and paper works. Additionally, an overview of his development as an artist is also presented. The small-formatted and fragile works of Paul Klees are afterimages of his poetic world from 1917 to 1940. About 70 art pieces by Paul Klees are represented in a collection, of which includes “Galgenhumor,” “Den Fischen läuten,” “Nekropolis,” and “Ein Kinderspiel.” This exhibitions are supplemented through exhibits of art by predecessors and initiating artists. Amongst these art pieces are works by Cézanne and Van Gogh, as well as African scultpures. 

The premises of the Berggruen Museum, like the Scharf-Gerstenberg, is located across the Charlottenburg Palace and previously serves as the senior officer barrack of the Gardes du Corps. The classical twin buildings was built from 1851 to 1859 and was designed to complement the outer façade of the palace. After the war and Germany’s reunification, this building was offered to the art dealer and collector, Heinz Berggruen, to be an exhibition venue for his art collection. Eventually, his collection was loaned to the Berlin State Museums for 10 years. In 2000, he sold 165 art pieces from his private collection to the National Gallery, and after his death, more art pieces were made available for loaning to the museum.
