Paris | Day Four | Picasso Museum

Picasso MuseumPicasso Museum

The Musée Picasso is located in the charming Marais district of Paris
which offers great dining and café options.

The building is rather grand and is considered to be one of the finest historic houses in the Marais. The interior of the building gave us a break from the heat outside with cool marble floors and clean white walls, which have recently been restored to expand the exhibiting space. 

We were lucky to walk straight in, with no queues, and I enjoyed how the museum displayed all aspects of Picasso's work - not just his paintings. The Musée Picasso has over 5,000 works of art by Picasso including 3,700 works on paper, ceramics, sculptures in wood and metal, and paintings. This is complemented by Picasso's own personal art collection of works by other artists, including Cézanne, Degas, Rousseau, Seurat, de Chirico and Matisse. It also contains some Iberian bronzes and a good collection of African art, by which Picasso was greatly inspired.
