Lonely Planet review

Fans of classical modern art will be in their element in this delightful museum, which just completed a major extension. Picasso is especially well represented with paintings, drawings and sculptures from all major creative phases. Elsewhere it’s off to Paul Klee's emotional world, Matisse's paper cut-outs, Giacometti's famous sculptures and a sprinkling of African art that inspired both Klee and Picasso.

Stand-outs by the latter include the Seated Harlequin from the early blue and rose periods, bold cubist canvases like his portrait of George Braque and the more mellow paintings of his later years, including The Yellow Pullover from 1939.
