Barcelona's tribute to one of its adopted sons, this fabulous collection is displayed in three adjoining medieval palaces. Picasso was born in Málaga but really started his long artistic career here. At Museu Picasso, you can see all of his most important early works, including engravings, lithographs and pottery. The most famous pieces on show are his Harlequin, a portrait of one of his wives, Jacqueline, and the Las Meninas series. Regular temporary exhibitions focus on different aspects of the artist's activities. For example, his research on landscapes or his foray into theater design. In addition, there are some examples of work by artists from the avant-garde movement.
I had always seen examples of Picasso's work from his cubist phase. but withit the Museu is examples of his work throughout his life. he had several phases and most of the look nothing like the cubist phase. Now I can appreciate his work. I do have to say the Guards were a little over reactive. I was worned for leaning in to look at the detail of the brush strokes, there was no line on the ground and plexi-glass covering the painting. I saw it happen to others while walking through. it was just annoying.
Kind of cold in the winter,though the restaurant was very good and not that expensive.
The art collection is only worth it if your a true Picasso lover, as most of the works that are really good were from his erlier period.
You won't really find many of Picasso's masterworks here. This museum is mostly devoted to his earlier works, where he was still developing and finding his artistic voice. This is a good museum to view his early artistic history, but isn't very good if you want a broad overview of his work.
Outstanding museum of Picasso's works.
This place was his house ( which I visited ~12 years ago) and has lost that original charm, it still has wonderful art to see and enjoy.
However, his most impressive and well-known works are seen at other museums around the world (i.e. Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA, etc.)
The Museu Picasso was both interesting and entertaining. I was just exploring that area of Barcelona and just happened across the exhibit. I am glad I did. The exhibit laid out the life of Picasso in chronologic order, and gives some insight into his life. If visiting this exhibition keep in mind you’re not allowed to take pictures or carry bags during the tour (a free bag / coat check is provided). Try to pick a time that you are not near any noisy school groups. Finally, this is a sight defiantly worth seeing!
I am very happy that I visited this museum. It made you really understand the essence of Picasso and the things that influenced his great works.
The museum is very well laid out and starts with his earlier works and takes you through his lifetime.
Some of his great pieces are in France and that was a little disappointing as well as the fact that many of his earlier works are neither dates nor signed.
Most o fthe work here was actually donated to the museum by Picasso himself.
i liked going there as seeing the paintings was very exiting. but there was hardly any place to sit down inside the gallery. i didnt get the chance to go into the cafe, but i expect it would meet up to your expectaions. i didnt like the temporary gallery as it was i bit boreing, but the permanint one was very nice. overall if your fit, and an art lover youd love it. but if not, then dont. if you do want to go, remember your not allowed to bring cameras, and the line is very, very, very long!
