Museo Picasso Review

Part of the charm of this art gallery, one of the city's most prestigious museums, is that it's such a family affair. These are the works that Pablo Picasso kept for himself or gave to his family, including the heartfelt Paulo con gorro blanco (Paulo with a White Cap), a portrait of his firstborn son painted in the early 1920s; and Olga Kokhlova con mantilla (Olga Kokhlova with Mantilla), a 1917 portrait of his certifiably insane first wife. The holdings were largely donated by two family members—Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, the artist's daughter-in-law and her son. The works are displayed in chronological order according to the periods that marked Picasso's development as an artist, from Blue and Rose to Cubism and beyond. The museum is housed in a former palace where, during restoration work, Roman and Moorish remains were discovered. These are now on display, together with the permanent collection of Picassos and temporary exhibitions. Guided tours in English are available (book at least five days ahead).
