What is the Museu Picasso?

It is a museum  that houses Picasso’s early and formative works. Among these works we can see the evolution of the artist who will later be considered the father of Cubism.

When was the Museu  Picasso opened to the public?

The museum was founded in 1963 by Picasso’s lifelong friend and secretary Jaume Sabartés who donated numerous paintings by the artist. It opened to the public on 9 March 1963, becoming the first museum dedicated to Picasso’s work and the only one created during his lifetime. He himself suggested building the museum in Barcelona and not in Malaga, his hometown. It has since been declared a museum of national interest by the Government of Catalonia.

Where is the museum housed?

The Museu Picasso occupies five large Catalan Gothic-styled houses or palaces of the Carrer de Montcada Barcelona, dating from the 13th century and 14th century, occupying a total area of 10,628 sqm.  The buildings were built following a similar pattern, around a courtyard equipped with an exterior staircase that allows access to the main floors. The buildings that house the collection of Picasso’s works also have their own history and name. (Palau Aguilar, Palau Baró de Castellet, Palau Meca, Casa Mauri and Palau Finestres).
