The Museu Picasso, situated in five medieval stone mansions and exquisite courtyards, is the ideal setting for the galleries and art collections presented inside. The beautifully preserved staircases in the first three of these buildings are as delightful as the collection inside.
The collection, which includes more than 3500 artworks, focuses on Picasso’s earliest years up until 1904 in Barcelona where the artist spent his formative creative years. However, there is enough material from subsequent periods to give you a thorough impression of the man’s versatility and genius. Above all, you come away feeling that Picasso was the true original, always one step ahead of himself in his search for new forms of expression.
