Due to ongoing strikes in France, opening hours of the museum could be modified on short notice. We recommend to visit in the early afternoon and always check last-minute closures on the website of the museum before visiting.
The Picasso Museum contains an impressive collection of more than 5,000 works by Pablo Picasso including paintings, sculptures, engravings, prints and drawings. For its quality and scope as well as the range of art forms it encompasses, this collection is the only one in the world to present both Picasso’s complete painted, sculpted, engraved and illustrated œuvre and a precise record—through sketches, studies, drafts, notebooks, etchings in various stages, photographs, illustrated books, films and documents—of the artist’s creative process

Picasso. Magic paintings
Between summer 1926 and spring 1930, Pablo Picasso created a vast collection of paintings that Christian Zervos (art critic) called in 1938 'magic paintings'. Those paintings opened a new chapter in Picasso's work which anticipates the power of Guernica a decade later.
The exhibition brings together many of these unique works scattered throughout the world, placing them in the context of surrealism and contemporary psychoanalytic movements.
