Barcelona's Picasso Museum is one of its most-loved art centres, focusing as it does on the early years of the Spanish painter's life; he moved with his family to Barcelona in 1895 when he was 14 and already well established in his art studies. The city played a key role in his development; in places such as Els Quatre Gats café, he regularly met with other creatives involved in the avant-garde movement. But he was a man constantly looking for new experiences and inspirations, and this exhibition at the Museu Picasso looks at the impact that his first two visits to Paris had on him.
Among the artists on show are Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Gauguin (on loan from the permanent collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Musée national Picasso Paris), whose work Picasso first encountered in person when he was in the French capital.
On the last Saturday of the month, Picasso Museum welcomes families with children between 5 and 11 years old and offers the an activity to enjoy together.

A poem done with colours and a verse done with shapes. Picasso and his poet friends experimented on how to create new shapes of poetry, and we propose a few.
The friendship between Picasso and the surrealist poet Paul Éluard was strong and unbreakable. Following the death of Apollinaire, both men got together to share and exchange ideas and opinions. The premature death of Éluard, after twenty years of friendship, was a major blow for the painter who had published a book months earlier with a series of the poet's drawings that featured a beautifully written prologue by Éluard himself. The Picasso Museum examines the relationship of both of these artists through Éluard's books and poetry and his art collection, as well as Picasso's portraits and drawings of the poet and his wife Nusch. We will also come across photographs by Man Ray and Brassaï and correspondence and documentary films narrating the meetings between the two friends.
