Art in Paris: The Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum is a non-negotiable stop for art lovers visiting Paris. Established in 1974, the museum holds the most complete collection of Pablo Picasso’s work. It is laid out over three levels in the 17th-century mansion, Hôtel Salé, considered the most extraordinary of the old Parisian houses. Visitors can explore Picasso’s full range of artistic expression from paintings and sculptures to engravings and illustrations. An upcoming exhibition entitled “Picasso. Magic Paintings” will be on view from October 1 to 23 February, displaying a series of works the artist developed between 1926 and 1930. Encompassing a coherent theme of figures, these paintings are said to evidence a depth of feeling that set the stage for Picasso’s grand oeuvre ‘Guernica’ ten years later.
