Musée Picasso Paris is brand new: after undergone work for three years during which National monuments architects refurbished Hôtel Salé's 34 rooms, Musée Picasso's permanent collection is about to extend! In October 2014 Musée Picasso set in three rooms of the building but there was talk to use the Hotel's 34 rooms, namely the whole Hotel, enabling to add new works and display over 5,000 paintings.
Furthermore we have been lucky enough to rediscover a wide part of Pablo Picasso's own collection featuring 150 works of French artists such as Cézanne, Renoir and Matisse as well as more than 150,000 private documents unveiling the Spanish artist's daily life and his exile in France during the Francoist period.
This substantial work is the perfect opportunity to publicize the collection. Musée Picasso Paris' visits were limited in 2008 and the museum closed. Then the artist's works have been exhibited all around the world attracting millions of onlookers into European museums.
