22. Picasso Museum, Málaga
During his life, Pablo Ruiz Picasso , the world-renowned artist, had expressed his desire of
having his work present in Málaga, the southern Spain city where he was born. Neverthe-
less, this idea didn't materialize until 2003, 30 years after the death of the artist, thanks to
the donations of his daughter-in-law and grandson.
The museum's permanent collection has 233 works, while 43 other are on loan through a
fifteen-year agreement. These worksgodate from1892to1972,andcover different times of
Picasso's life: his formative years in cubism , his ceramics or his reinterpretations of classic
works, ending with paintings from his later years. This collection helps visitors appreciate
the artist's evolution and the different techniques and styles he mastered.
The Picasso museum is located at the Palacio de Buenavista , and includes a studio where he
worked for a long time. There are also temporary expositions devoted to other artists.
