5 stories retracing the life of Pablo Picasso

A visit to the Picasso Museum (Musée Picasso) in Paris is well worth it as it holds the largest collection of Picasso artworks in the world.
The museum is housed in the Hôtel Salé, a private mansion built in 1656 and bought by the city of Paris in 1964. The Musée Picasso opened in 1985, and after 25 years of operation, it went through a long renovation, modernization and restauration program. I
t eventually reopened in October 2014 with 500 works spread over 5 floors.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Picasso’s personal archives have been given to the Musée Picasso in Paris, making it the world’s primary area to study Picasso’s work and life. 

Biography: who is Pablo Picasso?

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish artist, born in Malaga in 1881, who spent most of his life in France (Paris, Avignon, Mougins etc…).
He is considered a founding member of Cubism (along with his friend Braque) but has played with many different styles throughout his long career.
With over 50 000 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, sketches, ceramics, drawings, Picasso is one of the main artists of the 20th century. He died in Mougins, France, in April 1973 at the age of 91.

Layout: both chronological and thematic

The visit starts with Picasso’s earliest works, which are heavily influenced by the post-impressionist painters such as Van Gogh and Cezanne, and works its way through the different periods of Picasso’s life: the Blue period, the Pink Period, cubism, surrealism etc.
While most of the layout is chronological, there are certain areas dedicated to a particular theme: portraits, the corrida, women etc.
The basement floor offers a look at the different workshops that Picasso had during his lifetime from Montmartre’s small Bateau-Lavoir to the large Vauvenargues castle.
The top floor is dedicated to Picasso’s private collection, where works by artists such as Chardin, Courbet, Renoir, Braque and Matisse are exposed.

Parisianist Fun Fact: it has been scientifically proven that for some of his paintings, Picasso used wall paint instead of the traditional oil paint.

The Building: from the main staircase to the rearranged attic

The magnificent Hôtel Salé has been recently renovated to ensure a fluidity and comfort while admiring Picasso’s art and, on the top floor, his personal art collection.
One architectural highlight is the main staircase leading to the 1st floor, a beautiful 17th century staircase with fine moldings on the walls and ceiling.
The attic has been reworked to welcome Picasso’s private collection among beautiful exposed beams. This is another architectural highlight of the Musée Picasso.

Parisianist Fun Fact: The name Salé (“Salty”) comes from its first owner who was appointed by the government to collect the salt tax.

Conclusion: making the visit even more enjoyable

Both for the collection and the architectural splendor of the mansion, the Musée Picasso is not to be missed if you have already seen Paris’ iconic museums such as the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay.
You can always grab something to eat and drink in the museum’s cafeteria on your way out, which offers a rooftop terrace and a great view on the Hôtel Salé.
