The Musée Picasso in a few words

In the aftermath of Picasso's death in 1973, it was decided to convert a Hotel in Paris into a museum dedicated to his life and work. The Hotel Salé stands in the Marais district and dates from the 17th century. It is a splendid structure, and is ideal for hosting the masterpieces of the founder of Cubism. After extensive construction work, the museum was inaugurated by François Mitterrand in 1985. Nowadays, it is a wonderful museum, and certainly the most extraordinary collection of Picasso's work anywhere in the world. Comprising works acquired by the state following a settlement after Picasso's death and supplemented by donations by his heirs, the collection gathers more than 200 paintings, 150 sculptures, 100 ceramic pieces and 3,000 drawings and prints. It is a collection of exceptional quality that the artist had always refused to sell in order to one day offer it to a French museum.

Did you Know?

It is said that Picasso spent a whole night alone in the Louvre to compare his paintings with those of the great masters. He came out satisfied with the results of the examination, and he knew that there might one day be a Picasso museum. He once said: "Give me a museum and I will fill it". With the Picasso National Museum, he succeeded.
