Owner description: The private collection of Lucerne art dealer Angela Rosengart is open to the public since spring 2002. Over 200 important paintings and drawings by more than twenty world famous 19th and 20th century masters (Cezanne, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Klee, Miro and many others) are on display in a neo-classical building specially remodelled for this purpose. Near the railway station.

The collection (200 works by Picasso, mainly though not only from the later lesser known periods, a significant gathering of Paul Klee water colours and few other artists including Modigliani) has been gathered by the father and donated by his daughter.
With exceptional taste and vision Rosengart has bought from the artist himself paintings of the later period most connoisseurs were not interested in...and whith what an eye he did...The collection is wonderfully displaid in the rooms of a former UBS craft & style building that offers the paintings the light and space they deserve.
Despite the rather high price (almost no discount for kids which definitely is a shame) this collection is a highlight of any visit to Central Switzerland and mussn`t be missed.
Conveniently located at 10 minutes walk from the lake or fromthe station.

The presentation and style of the Rosengart is much superior to the main art museum in Lucerne - which had a boxy and impersonal feel.
If you like Picasso and Klee you will want to visit the Rosengart no matter what; but even for me - a fan of the Hudson River school - I found the collection very informative and well presented.
I'd recommend about two hours to see it all - add about 15 minutes if you plan to view the video showing on the third floor. You can visit the web site and get most of the information that is presented in the video.

Must qualify by saying I do not love Picasso's work. After visiting this once personal collection, I have seen some pieces of his work that I can now say I truly appreciate and enjoyed. A little pricey, 18 swiss Francs about 20 USD to get in but we showed up at an hour before closing (4pm) and they gave us a 3 franc discount. Even still, I think it was worth the fee as the way they framed the art, it allows you to see the entire canvas, wood, paper etc. The building itself is also fun to explore and they have a video that tells some of the history running in a great room upstairs. Truly unique and worth a visit.

The collection is just fabulous. I just love the spectrum of art that is in this private collection and when you hear about the connection the family Rosengart had to the painters it's takes you back in time and kind of makes you part of that history. I especially love the Paul Klee collection.

The Rosengarts are art dealers who had a personal relationship with Picasso and other artists of the period. The museum has a fine collection of his works, and for a very minimal entrance fee.
