Exhibitions

Picasso Comics
Now on  - Jan 3, 2021

Learn about the links between Picasso's work and the world of comics. This exhibition uses a selection of drawings, prints, and original plates to demonstrate how the artist's never wavering curiosity helped him explore new techniques and try his hand at a genre he had a passion for: comic book drawing.

Picasso Poet
Now on  - Jan 3, 2021

We know so much of Picasso through his brush strokes, yet the expressive nature of Picasso's poetry goes largely unseen. A key part of his creative process, this exhibition showcases a number of his manuscript poems, placing them in synchronicity with contemporary works of art, while drawing parallels between text and paintings.

Description

The Musée Picasso in Paris has an incredible collection of over five thousand works of art. Dedicated to one of the most well-known artists of the 20th century, this spectacular 17th-century hôtel particulier is filled to the brim with iconic modern masterpieces by Pablo Picasso - as well as works that he collected. This ticket gives you priority entrance to the legacy of an artistic genius. Pop into Picasso.

Pablo Picasso is one of the most iconic figures in 20th-century art. The Spanish painter, sculptor and graphic artist is known for his inventive techniques and versatile avant-garde style.

Picasso used materials in ways that had never been used before, inspiring artists who came after to follow in his brushstrokes. His singular style inspired movements such as Futurism and Dadaism, and this museum showcases the range and depth of his work. It also includes unseen photographs of the artist himself, as well as works from Picasso's private collection - including pieces by Cézanne, Degas, and Matisse.

This museum is housed in the Hôtel Salé - a building that has been described as one of the most extravagant grand homes of the 17th century. It was renovated and reopened in October 2014 with double the exhibition space and new reception areas.

In the same way that Picasso reveled in mixing medias and creating new styles from old ways of working, this stately mansion is a perfect setting to experience some of the world's most groundbreaking modern painting and sculpture.

Insider tip

The three-year restoration has served the collection well - since 2014, the museum has expanded from 3 rooms to 34!
