Musée Picasso Paris

in detail

Since 1985, the Musée Picasso Paris has been housed in one of the most important private residences in the Marais, the Hôtel Salé, which was built in the seventeenth century for a man who collected the salt tax, as its name indicates.

The museum was created to house the donations made by Picasso’s heirs in 1979 and has since enlarged its collection. It owns a unique set of Picasso’s works (paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, ceramics, etc) from throughout his career. Moreover, it holds Picasso’s private collections, which include primitive art, and paintings by Cézanne, Le Douanier Rousseau, Matisse, Braque and Balthus.
