Christmas is also the perfect time for a cultural outing in Paris, and art lovers are certain to be excited by the prospect of a visit to the newly renovated Picasso Museum which is just a 15 minute walk from Hotel Paris France.
After 5 years of extensive work, the museum is once again open to the public, and is home to the only collection in the world that allows you to explore Picasso’s work in all of its forms. See examples of his work in sculpture, printmaking, drawing and painting in a magnificent setting .
An incomparable collection of the artist's work
Salé Picasso Museum boasts a collection of over 5,000 of the artist’s works and tens of thousands of archival documents. The collection is exceptional and features some of the greatest art of the 20th century. Pablo Picasso was one of the founding fathers of the Cubist movement and explored a number of styles throughout his career. His surrealist works are recognised all over the world, and every period of the artist's extensive career is represented at the Picasso Museum.
See paintings from his ‘Blue Period’ such as ‘La Celestina’ and ‘Self Portrait’ or discover iconic works like ‘Kiss’ and ‘Matadors and Musicians’. His Cubist paintings such as ‘Man with Guitar’ are wonderful, while paintings like ‘The Pipes of Pan’ are part of an exceptional series of Surrealist paintings from 1924 – 1930. Iconic sculptures such as ‘Woman in the Garden’ (1930) or some of Picasso’s exciting steel cut-out sculptures from the 1960’s illustrate another aspect of Picasso’s work.
