Fodor's Review

In the late 1940s Picasso settled here in a simple stone house, creating pottery art from the malleable soil with a single-minded passion. But he returned to painting in 1952 to create one of his masterworks in the château's Romanesque chapel, the vast multipanel oil-on-wood composition called La Guerre et la Paix (War and Peace). The chapel is part of the Musée National Picasso today, where several of Picasso's ceramic pieces are displayed.
