Picasso Museum Barcelona
There are over 3500 works by the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso in this popular Barcelona museum. The museum itself is housed within five medieval palaces that are located on Calle Montcada in the Born district. It has the largest collection of his work found anywhere in the world and ranges from his classical artistic training through his groundbreaking impressionist works.
Two of his earliest works can be found at the museum: The First Communion created in 1896 and Science and Charity from 1897. The city of Barcelona itself had a big impact on the young painter and, in fact, shaped a great deal of his life. This relationship between painter and city is revealed within the museum.
The museum is arranged chronologically so, as you continue through the maze of rooms and displays, you can see how the painter’s style developed and changed over the years. There is no doubt that art lovers will consider this museum a must on any trip to Barcelona. In addition to a large permanent collection, there are also various temporary exhibitios on display, so even if you have been before it is always worth going again.
The Picasso Museum in Barcelona offers a fantastic day out and should be included on any itinerary when visiting this incredible city!
