Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is a museum dedicated to the most famous artist in the world: it collects one of the largest collections of the artist's works and is one of the most visited places in the city. The museum, which extends over five adjoining buildings, houses a very rich permanent collection, consisting of 4,249 works: among these are those dating back to the artist's youth spent in Barcelona, the city where Picasso moved in 1894.

Among the noteworthy works are two of his earliest masterpieces: "The First Communion" (1896) and "Science and Charity" (1897).

The Museu Picasso also hosts temporary exhibitions in which works by Picasso are presented and are also compared with those of other artists.

The museum presents works that also explore the various artistic periods lived by the artist, such as the Blue Period and the Pink Period or the phase of Picasso, engraver and ceramist.

Major works: Margot (1901); Mother with sick child (1903); Arlecchino (1917) and obviously Las Meninas (1957) where the clear influence of Velazquez is noted.
