Pablo Picasso & Barcelona
The Picasso museum of Barcelona is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city of Barcelona. The museum Picasso has three storeys and over 4,300 artworks by painter Pablo Picasso from the period 1890-1957. The Museo Picasso that opened in 1963 is housed in five adjacent medieval palaces in the district La Ribera. The artworks by painter Pablo Picasso on display in the gallery belong to cubism and surrealism as well as other styles. The Museo Picasso in Barcelona is one of the three museums (in addition to the Museo Picasso Malaga and Paris) that was named after and is dedicated to Spanish painter Pablo Picasso.
Picasso Museum Collection
Highlights of the museum collection are two of his biggest works, the First Communion (1896) and Science and Charity (1897); this early period of Picasso is well covered in the museum. The collection of 57 works from the series 'Las Meninas', the only series of works by Picasso that are all on display in a single museum is noteworthy as well. In addition, the Museo Picasso has a large collection of prints, oil paintings, drawings, and even ceramics; plus of course a photo exhibition about the life of Pablo Picasso.
The Museu Picasso reveals Picasso's connection to the city of Barcelona, a relationship that was shaped in his youth and adolescence, and continued until his death. When Pablo Picasso was fourteen years old, he enrolled in the Barcelona Academy of Fine Arts. He had excellent drawing skills from a very young age. Picasso also graduated in Barcelona and took his first steps there as a painter toward Modernism and Modern Art.
