Helen Berggruen is the daughter of the native Berliner and well known German art collector Heinz Berggruen, founder of the Berlin Berggruen Museum. The museum is also indebted to Helen Berggruen for substantial loans to the collection.


Helen Berggruen first pursued a career in acting, collaborating with Robert Wilson. Later she turned to painting and developed her own expressive style, strongly influenced by Vincent van Gogh and the French Impressionists. Using vivid colors she predominantly paints subjects from her own surroundings: still lifes, interiors, views of American suburbs, landscapes, both of America and of Southern France, where she spends some of her time. The present exhibition at the Villa Francke features a number of works painted earlier this year in Potsdam and its vicinity.
