The Rosengart Collection at Lucerne in Switzerland, puts a clear emphasis on Classic Modernism, featuring the works of several artists.
A major part of the gallery is devoted to Pablo Picasso and Paul Klee.
There are 32 paintings and some 100 drawings, water colours and numerous graphic and sculptural works of Pablo Picasso. Combined, all these reflect the genius and the creative vitality of the renowned artist.
Around 125 wonderfully resonant watercolours of Paul Klee form the second focus of the collection. The works are chronologically arranged, duly numbered, and embody the inexhaustible visual and narrative wealth of his works.
The gallery also showcases the genius of 21 other artists. These include Monet, Cezanne, Vuillard, Bonnard, Matisse, Braque, Leger, Miro and Chagall.
Each artist has his or her own unique imprint. Over time, as artists evolve, so do their works. We shall seldom come to know the source of their inspiration at any given point in time. But the legacy they leave behind is for all of us to cherish.
Their works represent a collage of nature and human emotions which happen to be universal in nature. In that sense, their works belong to humanity in general.
