The Hôtel Salé, a sumptuous 17th-century hôtel particulier, is now the Musée National Picasso, home to the world’s largest public collection of Picasso’s work.
The collection covers all his creative periods and all fields, with over 5,000 works -including paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, ceramics, and illustrated books- plus tens of thousands of archived pieces. There are also countless documents, works from his personal collection, photographs, and written archives. All in all, the museum offers a fresh interpretation and organisation of this master's life and works, giving you an invaluable insight into his creative formation and a fresh perspective on his wide-ranging oeuvre.
