This museum has the best collection in Spain of the work of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), and the best collection anywhere of his earliest works. The Spaniard Picasso spent his formative years (from age 14 to 23) in Barcelona, and a visit to this museum intimately reveals the young man finding his way as an artist. By experiencing his youthful, realistic art, you can better understand his later, more challenging art and more fully appreciate his genius.
Picasso’s personal secretary, Jaume Sabartés, amassed many examples of his friend’s work and bequeathed them to Barcelona. The artist himself donated pieces to the museum in his later life, happy to have a place showing off his work in the city of his youth.
