What does a masterpiece mean to Pablo Picasso? 

The exhibition “Picasso. Masterpieces! Answers this question by bringing together masterpieces, some of which are seen in Paris for the first time. Thanks to exceptional loans, masterpieces from all over the world will be combined with those of the Picasso-Paris National Museum to tell a fuller story

The ensemble exhibits a new approach of Picasso’s works. The existing archives of the Picasso-Paris National Museum occupy an essential place in this story, some shown for the first time.


The second floor is dedicated to tracing the major periods of Pablo Picasso’s work and offers a panorama of his techniques of creation. It is based on the collection of the Musée National Picasso-Paris, the world’s largest of the artist’s works, which is built round two donations made in 1979 & 1990.

On the third floor, masterpieces by Pablo Picasso interact with works from his personal collection, as in his workshops.

Artists buy and swop amongst each other. This means that often the earliest and most ‘adept’ works are in the hands of other artists and not the open market. This collection brings together contemporaries of the artist, such as Henri Matisse or Joan Miró, as well as old masters whom he admired and could afford !
