SAN FRANCISCO―John Berggruen’s new art gallery is scheduled to open on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 10 Hawthorne Street, located next door to Larry Gagosian’s new gallery. It is located across from the new entrance of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) on Howard Street.

He is the son of German art dealer and collector Heinz Berggruen, who sold several artworks to the German federal government, providing the foundation for the Berggruen Museum in Berlin.
The opening of the gallery will feature an inaugural exhibition called, “The Human Form,” running from Friday, January 13 until Saturday, March 4. The exhibit will feature contemporary art and 20th-century American and European works, as well as curated historic exhibitions, according to the gallery’s website.
The showing will house a variety of works, including Pablo Picasso’s 1907 “Le Nu Jaune”; Milton Avery’s 1944 “Girl With Folded Arms”; Roy Lichtenstein’s 1986 “Fashionable Lady”; Nick Cave’s 2005 “Soundsuit”; and an untitled work by Barry McGee from 2016.
