After Cubism, but before Guernica, Picasso created a series of works from the summer of 1926 through to the spring of 1930. Christian Zervos, the art historian whom Picasso put in charge of cataloging his work, dubbed them as Tableaux magiques.
The period saw Picasso experiment with new materials and the resulting paintings displayed more emotion than any previous works. This series cemented Picasso as one of the most important artists of the Surrealist movement, and would pave the way for masterpieces such as The Weeping Woman.
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.
