Lucerne from the Mussegg Wall
There are many museums in Lucerne. We chose the Rosengart Museum, a private foundation funded by Angela Rosengart. Through her father, Seigfreid, she was able to meet many significant artists of the 20th century and became a personal friend of Pablo Picasso. She bequeathed her collection of his and others' works to the foundation. The works are housed in a beautifully refurbished building. Picasso continues to intrigue us. There were beautiful line drawings of bulls and women.
The day had time to spare and we used it to take a cruise up the river to Lake Lucerne. It afforded us clear views of the Alps and out lying villages. I ended my day with a chocolate purchase destined to be enjoyed with some Valpolicella Ripasso.
