Picasso and His Collection in Barcelona.

Posted on 24 January 2008 in Barcelona, always!

The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is pleased to present Pablo Picasso’s personal collection of art works. Presenting over one hundred works – including some forty paintings by Renoir, Cézanne, Rousseau, Braque, Matisse and others -, this range of art, gathered together over a whole lifetime paints, in its own way, an intimate portrait of Picasso, the man.

The nature of this collection, however, is unique and personal. Picasso did not possess the typical qualities, often all consuming and accumulative, of a standard art collector. Above all, this collection is not the fruit of a deliberate or pre-established project. Art works were added to the mess of his successive art studios, thrown on the floor haphazardly, framed or unframed, in the midst of his own paintings, or hung on the wall in a disorderly fashion without there ever existing the intention of putting any of them on show to the general public. In some ways, this collection forms the “backgrounds” to his own art studios.
