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.
Picasso had a love of words, writing, poetry and language from a young age. His friend André Breton enshrined this side of Picasso's personality in 1935 with a text published in Cahiers d’Art. This painting genius acknowledged that “All the arts are ultimately one and the same. One can write a painting with words just as one can paint sensations in a poem.” The temporary exhibition entitled Picasso Poeta reveals the importance of poetry writing to his creative career and introduces us to his manuscripts and his sources, the connection between his writings and paintings and, above all, his ingenuity as a poet.

Barcelona's Carrer Montcada is lined with a succession of medieval, Renaissance and baroque palazzos, their majestic doorways opening to reveal their beautiful courtyards of venerable stone.
