Picasso Museum Paris

Visiting Museums
In the heart of the fashionable Marais district in Paris, the Picasso Museum is dedicated to the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). The Picasso Museum is housed in Hotel Sale, a superb 1656 city mansion, close to Centre Pompidou. The museum opened in 1985 with 203 paintings and 156 pieces of sculpture, coming from the Picasso heritage and paid to the French state as death duties. Pablo Picasso arrived in Paris in 1900. With many other painters, he then turned Montmartre into the fabric of modern art. Pablo Picasso then spent most of his life in Paris and warm and lovely Provence in Southern France. You will see great paintings in the museum including Paul Arlequin and the portrait of Dora Maar. Whether you like Pablo Picasso paintings or not, you will be moved by the colorful masterpieces in display.
