A PARIS JOURNAL – GIVE ME A MUSEUM, I’LL FILL IT

 

LE MUSÉE NATIONAL PICASSO-PARIS

 

And fill it he did.

On my visit to Paris last summer I posted a blog about the Picasso Museum and how I hadn’t been able to visit it for the past few years because it was always closed for renovations. (see my blog The Paris Journal – IX : https://nitepoetry.wordpress.com/2014/07/20/the-paris-journal-xi/) Well, today I finally visited the newly opened museum and I must say that I found it to be an incredible experience. The building has been thoroughly renovated from top to bottom. The displays of Picasso’s many different types of works were excellently presented through some five floors of well-spaced and artfully lighted rooms. And although there were a good number of visitors, one never had to struggle through hordes of viewers to see the paintings and sculptures. Security consisted of a quick backpack check (note that one does have to check their backpack for the duration of the visit at the “coat” check counter, but there is no fee charged). The best thing is that photography is allowed (without a flash). I spent over two hours leisurely browsing through the museum and was able to view every work displayed and take numerous photos. For the true Picasso aficionado it is a must and for the casual curious visitor it is a wonderful overview of his various periods and types of works. Admission is just 11 Euros and can easily be booked online in advance (recommended). There is an English language website:

http://www.museepicassoparis.fr/en/.

It will certainly remain on my list of places to revisit in the future…

THE PARIS JOURNAL – XI

 

THE PARIS PICASSO MUSEUM

 

If you are traveling to Paris before the end of October and want to visit the Picasso museum, you will be disappointed. If you journey after the end of October you will be happy to know that the Paris Picasso museum is finally set to reopen – three years later than planned. The museum, housing one of most extensive collections of Spanish artist’s work, is now scheduled to reopen five years after closing for renovation on October 25th 2014. In May of this year the Culture Ministry announced that it would open in September, but apparently that date has now been changed to October. 

The final bill for the refurbishment of the 17th-century baroque mansion now stands at 52 million Euros, 22 million Euros  higher the original budget due to changes in the scope of the work. The museum’s exhibition space will be more than doubled to 40,000 square feet (3,800 square metres) after the renovation.

Although the museum has around 5,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, photographs and documents, previously only a fraction could be displayed at any one time due to limited space. There will also be a corresponding rise in the number of visitors that can be admitted at once from 380 to 650, and annual admission figures are expected to jump from 450,000 to 850,000.
