Picasso Museum Tips (2)

picaso museum...a cultural event !

Favorite thing the totally refurbished 16th century "palacio de los condes de buenavista" on calle san agustin (100m from the cathedral) is since 27th of october 2003 the new important museum devoted to the malaga-born pablo picasso,with 200 never exposed works donated by his daughter-in-law christine ruiz picasso and his grandson bernard picasso.

all you want to know (english/spanish/french) visiting:


Fondest memory "PICASSO's last time visit in his birthplace took place in 1901,but his heirs wanted to incite malaga city to build a picture gallery exposing part of picasso works.
CHRISTINE,widow of the eldest of picasso children,PAUL ruiz picasso,is carrying out paul's will:he had asked for finding an adapted and worthy place to build a picasso centre.
the MUSEUM will open next 27th of october in the "palacio de buenavista",a 16th century palace with mudejar and renaissance styles and also in some old buildings contiguous to malaga's juderia,very near exact picasso birthplace.
remains of phoenician walls (700 bc) as roman and arabic relics will be accessible to the public.Malaga museum will expose a 204 works collection:paintings,drawings,sculptures,engravings,ceramics,from academic youth to 1970's last works.
some of the works,among the most appreciated by picasso himself have never been exposed until now.they proceed from donation and long term loan of christine and her son BERNARD ruiz picasso private collections.
moreover,for the opening occasion,temporary exhibition of 85 works lent by private persons and paris picasso museum.
museum is waiting for 1,4 million of visitors by the year and for a economic impact above 30,3 millions of euros."

El Pintor

Favorite thing No, not going to bother you with details...
Picasso, whose work by the way I like a lot, lived the first ten years of his life in Malaga. Just wanted to add this photo of his house. (ok, picture taking is not allowed inside, but I admit, macedonians seem to always be able to find a "back door")
