The Picasso museum

The world's most famous painter Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, but lived in Barcelona with his family from 1895 to 1904. It was here that he spent his big years as an artist. Their artistic genes was passed on to Pablo from his father who was an art teacher. The young Pablo Picasso had already started his art studies in Malaga when he decided to move to the city of Barcelona, which he later said had a great influence on his early years as a struggling artist.

The Picasso Museum is located in Born, near Barceloneta, and is Barcelona's most famous museum. The museum's collection in Barcelona is unique. You will find several of his early sketches and lesser-known work, showing his development as an artist.
