The inside story
The Picasso Museum is a key attraction for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection, one of the most extensive collections of artworks by the famous Spanish artist. The Picasso museum, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death.
This is the first museum dedicated to Picasso's work and the only one created when the artist was still alive. Since then, it has been declared a Museum of National Interest by the Government of Catalonia. The museum has one of the most complete permanent collections of works from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to his Blue Period. The place also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.
