With an art journey Musée Picasso private tour we will wonder at not just the creativity of Pablo Picasso, or his ability to keep on creating for seven decades, but for being the only artist ever to have filled two museums in his own lifetime..
With nearly 300 paintings and 250 sculptures, including Picasso's own art collection, the Picasso Museum is the largest collection of Picassos in the world, housed in one of the grandest mansions of Paris's Marais district. Let's meet one of the great geniuses of art. Being at at the forefront of several artistic revolutions is one thing. But every day, for 75 years, that man set out to do a new work of art.
He used paint, cardboard, his children toys, a stone found on the beach, bicycle parts, clay, anything he could lay his hands on. And twelve hours before he died, at 91 years of age, he was still creating...
"It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child". The young penniless immigrant would quickly take Paris by storm, and his staggering creativity meant he possibly is the only artist in history that is instantly recognised by anyone, worldwide.
With our private tour Picasso museum we will discuss his work, often in his own words, see each big step of his art production and with his own art collection discover his artistic influences. In particular, his love for Cézanne. And discuss how trying to put labels on his work and explain such an artist is futile...

More widsom from Pablo Picasso :
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.".
"There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun".
"The world doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?".
