The Picasso Museum in the stunning Hotel Salé is the most impressive and comprehensive collection of Picasso’s artworks in the world. With over 5,000 pieces, including tens of thousands of archived pieces, the Picasso Museum isn’t short on a masterpiece or two.

The museum boasts art, sculptures, photographs and sketches depicting all manner of themes. A visitor to this fascinating museum will learn about his multifaceted approach to his artistic expression and can appreciate the true skill of this world-class artist.

Things to see:

Paintings

There are over 300 paintings alone to enjoy, and visitors familiar with his works will recognise his Self-portrait, La Celestina, The Kiss, as well as large nudes, matadors and musicians. Large Cubist paintings are also on show from the Man with Guitar and later his Surrealist works and those representing the Spanish Civil War.

Sculptures

The sculptures on show at the Picasso Museum mostly came from his personal studio and so are lesser known, such as his Cubist wood and bronze sculptures, large plaster busts and wire-framed models. On display are the Bull’s Head, the Man with Sheep and The Baboon and Young.

Prints

Picasso loved to rework the basic medium of paper and experimented with it in various ways, such as pasting, ripping, layering and printing. In his personal collection alone there were over 3,900 extra pieces of art that he had fashioned from just paper, highlighting his skill of employing different techniques to turn one piece of paper something completely new.

The best idea ever! No line ups, subway passes, museum passes! Having the Paris pass was a terrific! We weren't familiar with Paris and by having the 2 day hop on, hop off pass, it enabled us to get the lay of the land first! The subway pass was terrific as you go can anywhere! We took a beautiful river boat cruise down the Seine! The best part of the pass was getting into all of the museums without lining up!! The line ups were really long and it was really hot, so walking to the front and just going in paid off royally!!
