Musée Picasso :
Right in the middle of the fashionable Marais district, in between the Pompidou Center and the Place des Vosges, the Picasso museum is entirely devoted to the great spanish painter Pablo Picasso (1881/1973).
Housed in the Hôtel Salé, a 1656 superb city mansion, it was opened in 1985 with 203 paintings and 156 pieces of sculpture coming from Picasso's heritage paid to the french state as death duties. Just remember Pablo Picasso firts came to Paris in 1900 (in Montmartre) and spent most of his life in Paris and Provence (in the south of France). The museum was further enriched in 1990 with 47 paintings from Jacqueline Picasso's heritage.
Among the many Picasso's paintings, you will find a 1901 self portrait, the 1906 two brothers and self portrait, the 1917 portrait of Olga in an armchair, the 1925 kiss, and the 1931 woman in a red armchair and the 1937 portrait of Dora Moor. Whether you like Pablo Picasso's paintings and pieces of sculpture, you will be moved by the colorful and expressing masterpieces displayed in the museum. Overall, the Picasso Museum is a very nice and intimate museum in the middle of a fashionable and typically Parisian district.
