historical notes Heinz Berggruen (b. 1914) opened a shop in Paris after World War II, selling rare and limited editions.

In 1952 he opened a gallery in Paris, becoming one of the most important post-war dealers in classic Modern art—Picasso, Klee, Matisse, Léger, and Miro—with a large and significant clientele. After his retirement in 1982 he donated 90 works by Paul Klee to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In 2000, he sold his collection of 113 modern masterpieces to the German government. Berggruen lived in Switzerland.
