Meet your guide at the Picasso Museum in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona for a guided tour of the permanent collection. Skip the line and enter the museum directly. The museum is contained within 5 medieval stone mansions, which are a stunning example of Catalan Civic Gothic Architecture. Walk through a collection of 3500 artworks, which focus on the formative years of this artistic genius.
Walk on through the exhibit and watch as a precocious young painter establishes himself as the leading artistic force of the 20th century. Admire sketches and oil paintings from his earlier years, including paintings of his family such as Retrato de la tía Pepa, painted in Málaga in 1896. See paintings from the artist’s first visit to Paris. See the Woman with Bonnet, an important work from Picasso’s Blue Period. Continue and watch as the artist ages into maturity, creating his Cubist works, still lives, and ceramic pieces.
