The Jewish German art collector Heinz Berggruen has died on the 23rd of February at the age of 93. Berggruen collected major works by Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, and Pablo Picasso.
“Mr. Berggruen, who had a home in Paris, also kept an apartment on the top floor of the newly renamed Berggruen Museum and was frequently seen showing visitors around the paintings. “Every day, I say ‘good morning’ and ‘good night’ and tell them to sleep well,” he once noted with a typical smile of pleasure.” NY Times
