  • Strong commercial odor in his later years Picasso Center collection, but, so, sorry. Exhibits plenty of Klee's works, clay, on the other hand, is in the basement room, less chance in Japan is quite satisfied. You could revel in Berkeley's philosophy, and fewer people, slowly over time.

  • One of our most beautiful cultural experiences was a stopgap for a rainy Sunday... The collection of descript and sealed-looking façade of the former National Bank branch has exceeded our expectations: we could admire more than 300 works by Picasso, Klee, Chagall, Renoir, Seurat, Signac, etc. in the beautiful and simply restored premises. Above all we want to thank wife Dolores Gonzales for the great leadership: you knew so many personal and sometimes also very humorous stories about the friendship of the Rosengart Stifter family and the artist, about the history of the entire collection, but also about the stories of the individual plants. It is much more interesting and it remains a forever if you know WHY, WHY, WHY and can see through the personal photos and stories the world famous artist actually as ordinary people. In the old session room of the Bank, you can see a short film about the collection, I also would like to recommend. Paul Klee lovers should be aware that they can expect of course not so many and such well-known works as at the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland. That would be Yes somewhat illogical. The collection is located just a few steps from the train station.
