With an impressive collection of over 5,000 works of art, the Musée Picasso National de Paris invites you to discover masterpieces of contemporary art by Pablo Picasso, one of the best-known painters of the 20th century, and his collection of works. Immerse yourself in the world of Picasso! Please obtain tickets in advance for smooth entry to the museum.
Pablo Picasso is one of the most iconic figures of 20th century art. He was a leading Spanish painter, sculptor, and graphic artist, known for his creative technique and his versatile, avant-garde style. Picasso used materials in ways never before used, and his brushwork inspired artists who followed in his footsteps, inspiring movements such as Futurism and Dadaism with his distinctive style. This museum exhibits the breadth and depth of his art. Visitors will be able to view never-before-seen photographs of the artist himself, as well as his private collection of works by Cézanne, Degas, Matisse, and others. The museum is housed in a magnificent 17th century mansion called the Hôtel Salé. It was renovated and reopened in October 2014 with doubled exhibition space and a new reception hall. Just as Picasso used mixed media to express himself and create new styles from old methods of production, this majestic mansion is the perfect place to view some of the world's most groundbreaking contemporary paintings and sculptures.
