The Picasso Museum in Paris is full of the art that Picasso himself considered his best works. Not necessarily the art that is critically acclaimed.
I wanted to go because of all the famous artists, I understand Picasso the least. Some of his early pieces are ok, but his later works I really don’t like, and I thought, maybe if I could understand him better I would like it better.
The Museum is in the Le Marais district, which was full of narrow streets, cool shops and neat cafés. Unfortunately I was taking a break from picture taking and did not get any pictures of this. The following pictures from the museum were taken by Nicole. They did not really like our taking pictures within the museum so these were hard to get.
The Goat, Le Chèvre
Cast of Picasso’s right hand
For the Woman in a Long Dress
Head of a Woman
Here’s one by Matisse – Still Life with Oranges
I was glad to have seen the museum.
