The Museum of Modern Art presents the prodigious collection of gallerist Michael Werner of Berlin. He has bequeathed nearly 900 works by artists he supports, including Georg Baselitz, Marcel Broodthaers, Sigmar Polke and also Fautrier, Arp Picabia …

Michael Werner chose this Parisian museum in honor of its role in helping him discover and develop his passion for contemporary art. Werner is still very active, with 3 galleries in Germany and the United States; he opens a fourth this month in London, with an exhibition of drawings by Peter Doig.
