Museo Picasso Málaga

The Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to Pablo Picasso’s own desire for his work to be present in the city where he was born, on 25th October, 1881. The Museum was created thanks to the shared wishes of Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, the artist’s daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations constitute the core of the MPM Collection, and to the efforts of the Autonomous Government of Andalusia, which coordinated the major project to set up a museum devoted to the artist whose styles and techniques changed the course of modern art. The 233 works in the MPM collection cover Picasso’s revolutionary innovations, as well as the wide range of styles, materials and techniques he mastered. From his earliest academic studies, to his personal take on the Classics; from the overlapping perspectives of Cubism, to his experiments in ceramics, and from his re-workings of the Old Masters, to his late paintings in the 1970s.
