The Berggruen gathering his collection for nearly three decades, gave one of the Berlin museums, which is included in the State registry.

At the end of 2000, one of the German funds - the Prussian cultural heritage Foundation has acquired the collection, the Berggruen sold not even half, and for a quarter of the cost. The total sum amounted to 253 million then German marks, and this, of course, negligible for the paintings that are part of world heritage. Today the exhibition is available at the National gallery of Berlin, more precisely in the West building of Styler.

But the works of Henri Matisse less, but among the 20 paintings are the most famous silhouettes. It should be noted that the collector did not cease to buy works of art, moreover, periodically to give them to the Museum.
