Pablo Picasso is without a doubt one of the most important painters not only of the twentieth century, but also of history. His works have inspired others all over the world and they were shocking and revolutionary during the time he painted them, something that only helped to make his influence in art even bigger.
As you might know, Barcelona hosts the Museu Picasso (Picasso Museum) which has the largest collection of the works by the master with about 4,250 works. Not all of them are part of the permanent collection, but the museum has the biggest permanent collection of Picasso works so you can always enjoy the best works.
This museum is located in La Ribera area and it’s composed by five different palaces or large houses from the 14th century. The buildings themselves are already very interesting, and they have a similar style, with the same style and they all have gardens.
When you see the number of works the museum has you might think it’s too much, and too much to see in one day, that’s why it’s great to have some Picasso guided tours to discover a selection of the best works which include paintings, drawings, ceramic and engraving, showing that Picasso could master all these disciplines.
The museum doesn’t only focus on Picasso, as it’s not so strange to find exhibitions of works by other contemporary artists. Also they organise lectures and seminars about Picasso, his career and other related subjects that can be a really interesting learning experience. And if you visit the museum you should try and visit the library, with over 6,000 references but remember that you must do a booking in advance.
