Aboa Vetus/Ars Nova
Aboa Vetus/Ars Nova Review
This museum displays a unique combination of history and art. Begun as a straightforward extension of the Villa von Rettig collection, the museum's concept changed when workers discovered archaeological remains, which were excavated and incorporated into the museum. Modern art in the old villa includes works by Auguste Herbin (1882–1960) and Max Ernst (1891–1976), as well as Picasso's The Swordsman, although not all works are always on display. The preserved excavations in the Aboa Vetus section date to as early as the 13th century.
