Facts about Pablo Picasso and the Barcelona Museum

Even though he lived in France for most of his life, he returned to Barcelona time and time again. Picasso lived in the city during his crucial formative years and always held a special place in his heart for Barcelona city. This is perhaps why he decided to help launch the first Picasso museum right in Barcelona.

In 1960, Picasso proposed the idea of a museum to his friend Jaume Sabartes. Just three years later, this gorgeous museum opened in the old city, near the Gothic Quarter and displayed Picasso pictures, paintings, sculptures and more.

The museum was initially called the Sabartes Collection. When the museum first opened it was predominantly Sabartes' personal collection and some Pablo Picasso art works donated by the artist himself.

Picasso's political opposition to the regime that was in power at the time also prevented him from having a museum in his name. Of course, now everyone knows the Museu Picasso or the Picasso Museum.
