Picasso Museum Grand Reopening

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 of the artist’s creative process.

The Hôtel Salé is probably “the grandest, most extraordinary, if not the most extravagant, of the grand Parisian houses of the 17th century”.
The building has seen many occupants come and go over the centuries. However, paradoxically, before the place was entrusted to the museum,
it was rarely “inhabited”, but instead leased out to various private individuals, prestigious hosts and institutions.
