The Pablo Picasso Museum, Malaga

By Ruth Polak

The Pablo Picasso Museum in Malaga is a wonderful tribute to this great

and innovative artist of the twentieth centuary.

It had been a long time desire of the artist himself, as well as his

family, that he should have a presence in his birthplace city of M"laga. The

Picasso Museum is one of only three in the world dedicated exclusively to

the artist. He was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth

century being as he was both an innovator of artistic styles and

techniques and thus changed the course of modern art.

The Picasso Museum is located in the historic city center and

is housed in the wonderful 16th. centuary Palacio de Buenavista.

The majority of the permanent collection is exhibited in the

Palacio de Buenavista.This large, noble house is typical of Andalusian

architecture of that period with its blend of Renaissance and

Mudejar influence. Christine Ruiz Picasso, the principal donor of the

funds, had expressed her wish that the building should be of typical

Andalusian architecture and this indeed is a fitting monument to

house the great man's works.

In its twelve halls, the Picasso Museum displays amost 200 works of art

which constitute the permanent collection. The art gallery also

include 4 other halls for temporary exhibits. Completing the

museum facilities are an assembly hall, a library, an educational

department and an investigation and a promotion center.

The main collection is principally made up of works donated, or on loan,

from Christine Ruiz-Picasso, daughter-in-law of the artist, and her

son Bernard, grandson of Picasso.The museum opened with 204 permanent

works of which 133 are due to Christine's collaboration. An additional

49 works are on free permanent loan for a period of 10 years. Another

40 pieces are on loan from Bernard for the period of one year. Of

incalculable value, this collection consists of works and paintings

that Picasso gave to his family members and the majority of the

exhibits in the collection have not been seen in public

before. Among the numerous works to be seen for the first time are

Olga Kokhlova con Mantilla (1917), Madre y ni"o (1921-1922) and

Retrato de Paulo con Gorro Blanco (1923).

13th.March.-11th. June 2006.

The Picassos of Antibes.

In 1946 Picasso was offered one of the great rooms at the Castle of Antibes

to use as a studio. He was so pleased with the offer that he exclaimed,

"I'm not only going to paint, I'll decorate the museum too!" The resulting

series of paintings reflected the jubilation of liberation. Picasso later

added sculptures,graphics and ceramics to this collection thus forming

the base for the first French museum dedicated to him.

This exhibiton will comprise a selection of these most outstanding works,

none of which have been seen in Spain before.
