Rosengart Collection Museum LuzernThe Rosengart Collection of Lucerne presents the works of classic modernism through principally the works of Picasso and Klee. Angela Rosengart began as an apprentice under her art dealer father and by the 1950’s was co-owner in the Rosengart Gallery. Her father grew particulary close to Pablo Picasso, with the back rooms of the gallery crowded with his early, mostly ignored works. Georges Braque, Miro, Modigliani and Chagall, and others joined the collection. For a while a number of the Picassos were granted to the city of Lucerne and on display as the Picasso Donation Museum, but in 2008, the Picasso Museum closed and the works joined the rest of the collection in the Sammlung Rosengart Luzern, the Rosengart Collection Art Museum in a former bank building on Pilatusstrasse.

The museum is just two blocks around the corner from the mail rail station and near the Chapel Bridge. It has one of the most impressive collections of Picasso and Paul Klee in private hands, with 32 Picasso paintings and a hundred drawings and other works. Over 100 watercolors, paintings and drawing Klee take up three quiet floors of the neo-classic building once belonging to the Swiss National Bank. The Rosengart Collection, a private museum - is open every day including holidays, from 10am – 6pm April to October and 11am – 5pm, in winter months. The entry for adults is 18 Swiss Francs.
