The Museo Picasso Málaga was inaugurated in 2003. The institution has since then become fundamental for an understanding of the rich development of local culture. The museum is both a landmark and a magnet, as well as a key symbolic referent for anyone living in the capital of the Costa del Sol. For those drawn to Málaga from all parts of the world by the talent and fame of the most important painter of the 20 th century, it is moreover an invitation to learn at close hand about the life and work of the locally born artist.
A visit is made all the more attractive by the architectural merits of the Palace of Buenavista, the building that houses the Foundation, whose vernacular heritage has not only been respectfully restored but also intelligently combined with contemporary architecture.
Located in the XVI century Palacio de Buenavista, right in the city's historic heart and very near the Cathedral and the Roman Theatre, the museum offers a permanent collection devoted in its entirety to Picasso's work. Diálogos con Pablo Picasso comprises more than 100 paintings, sculptures, graphic works and ceramics that show the revolutionary inventions of his artistic trajectory. This exhibition shows the intensity and the creative ability of an artist that is fundamental to understand the history of Western art.
