    Picasso museum - Barcelona

    Windows of Casa Batllo

    We parked the car near Barcelona beach and as usualy continue trip to the centre of Barcelona by bike.

    Picasso Museum is positioned write in the centre of city. Because of big city and small lane where Museu stayed, searching is a bit retardatory. Cycling near beach through palm promenade and spectacular buildings to the Colon (Columb square) was pleasent. From here we wraped up to the city center.

    Trip to the Picasso museum - Barcelona

    The museu collections contain key works that mark the various early times when Picasso was most intensely involved with the city of Barcelona, in exhaustive detail up to his Blue period as well as works from other notable dates, such as the year 1917, when he visited Barcelona, accompanying Olga Khokhlova and the Russian ballets of Diaghilev. The Museu Picasso also offers an exellent series of engravings by the artist, while our ceramic section boasts 41 pieces created between 1947 and 1965, donated in 1982 by Jacqueline Roque.

    To the museum we arrived a little to early, the museum was at 9:00 still closed. In the nearby cafe we treat coffee and snack. Now we were prepared for continuation of trip to the museu.

    On the way we were stopped in the hostel and get a great detailed map of Barcelona city. In a few minutes, we found out lane with Museum.

    The Museu Picasso of Barcelona is the centre of information and background for the early years of learning of Pablo Picasso.

    The history of the Museu Picasso is a tribute to the artist's express desire to leave his mark on Barcelona. That wish was materialised by the contribution of Jaume Sabarates, his close friend ever since their youth and personal secretary from 1935 onwards, as it was Sabartes who donated his own personal collection of Pablo Picasso paintings to the city of Barcelona. In this way, he became the driving force behind the creation of Museu Picasso in Barcelona, the first anywhere in the world and the only one created while Picasso was still alive.

    On March 9, 1963, under the name of the Sabartes Collection', the museum officially opened its doors to the public in the Palau Aguilar. In 1970, Picasso himself donated nearly a thousand more works that had been kept in his falily's Barcelona residence.

    As result, the City Council made avaliable the Palace next door, the Castellet. These works, together with 58 magnificent paintings that go to make up the Las Meninas series - a hugely rich interpretative analysis of Velazquez's famous work that Picasso had donated in the memory of Jaume Sabartes in 1968, made the Museu Picasso of Barcelona the not to be missed central point for anybody intersted in knowing more about the artist's work.
