Picasso, originally from Spain, became first a prodigy of contemporary art, and then a ground-breaking painter in Paris. Young Pablo arrived in this capital city of art first in year 1901. He had several up and down times, but the inspiration he found in Paris affected him deeply. He lived and produced throughout many decades, including majority of his masterpieces in this city, most notably in Montmartre. He led or influenced major art streams like cubism or futurism. Most significantly, he changed the way we see the art forever.
When he passed away in 1973, the French State made a deal with his family and claimed his collections for the taxes they owed. This is why, this Picasso Museum in Paris presents the most personal pieces about you could find anywhere in the world. Some of his unseen photos, his sketches unearthed before or, most importantly, his private collection (including works by Cézanne, Degas and Matisse) are among those pieces you might see inside.
