Picasso Museum (Musée Picasso) Tours

Europe has no lack of Picasso museums, but the Musée Picasso in Paris should be at the top of your list. The Hotel Salé, a mid-17th-century home in Le Marais, was renovated from residence to museum, starting in 1968, and since then has developed a world-class collection of more than 3,000 of Picasso's works spanning his entire, prolific career.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was the outstanding genius of 20th-century art: he painted, drew, and otherwise created from his early youth until his death at the age of 91. Much of his prolific and prodigious legacy can be found in the wonderful Musée Picasso.

The Spanish-born artist spent a great deal of his life in Paris, and while this museum may not hold his big name works, it does offer the most complete overview of his oeuvre, and highlights his playfulness and humor. Tucked away in the chic Marais neighborhood, the museum is housed in the Hôtel Salé, a wonderfully restored 17th-century mansion. It includes more than 3,500 of the grand maître's engravings, paintings, ceramic works, drawings and sculptures, which the artist's heirs donated to the French government in lieu of inheritance taxes. Among the collection is his Girl with Bare Feet , painted when Picasso was only 14. You can also see part of Picasso's personal art collection, which includes works by Braque, Cézanne, Matisse, Modigliani, Seurat, Degas and Rousseau.

Practical Info

The Musée Picasso is at 5, rue de Thorigny in the third arrondissement, accessible by Métro line 1 (St-Paul) and 8 (Chemin Vert).
