About the Collection
Key works of French art after 1945 have been assembled from the important collection of the married couple Peter and Irene Ludwig and made available to the newly founded Ludwig Museum.
The Ludwig Museum uses the adjacent park as a permanent exhibition space for striking sculptures from the collection, which one can discover by talking a walk around the museum.
