Although a native of Spain, Picasso's adult life was centered around Paris. After his death in 1973 the French state inherited many of Picasso's works. Wisely, the French government decided to form a museum dedicated to the life and work of Pablo Picasso.
Picasso knew no bounds of creativity. Painting, sculpture, sketches, ceramics - Picasso conquered them all.
A former 17th century hotel in the trendy Marais district was chosen as the site of the Picasso museum. The hotel's restoration and conversion to a museum was completed in 1985.
The museum holds a total of over 3,400 works of Picasso. Works of Picasso's contemporaries such as Cezanne and Matisse have been added over the years.
