Musee Picasso - Picasso Museum, Paris: 40 reviews and 96 photos
I'm not a huge Pablo Picasso fan but it?s worth a visit, not only for his works but also for the works of his friends ( I think I enjoyed the artwork of his friends, such as Georges Braque or Joan Miró, more than his stuff).
Of Picasso's works I liked the paintings of:
What I love about it is the witch-like quality of the sitter and that he painted her blind eye. I really love that he attempted to depict the real (although later in a cubist style but very real to him, perhaps the interior qualities of the subject) rather than just the beautiful.
Bust of a lady with a large nose
This lovely lady was another of my favorites at the Musée Picasso. I'm not really sure why yet except that it may be one of the few "nice" depictions of a woman in Picasso's repertoire. Hmmm...let me ponder on this.
Bronze of a Bull's Head
It's cool, it's different, it's quirky, it's so very Spanish!
This maison (Hôtel Salé) in the Marais that the works are housed in is itself beautiful. Look around you at all the gorgeous architectural details. Crown mouldings on the ceiling are lovely.
