Picasso was an 'Andalus'

One of the most important national events that has taken place last month in Andalucia has been the commemorative official opening of the Picasso Museum in Malaga on Monday 27 October by their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain.

Also attended Manuel Chaves, President of the Regional Government of Andalucia; Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, daughter-in-law and grandson of the artist; Carmen Calvo, Minister for Culture of the Regional Government of Andalusia, MPM director Carmen Giménez, and most members of the Picasso family.

The museum is housed in the Palacio de Buenavista, a XVI century building that combines both Renaissance and Mudejar styles and which was declared a national monument back in 1939.

THE COLLECTION
The Museum's Collection comprises a total 204 works, which have been generously donated or loaned for a renewable ten-year period by Christine and her son, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso.

It encompasses works from the end of the 19th century till 1972, allowing us to contemplate the artistic evolution of the creator of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.

Picasso's daughter-in-law has donated 133 works that include oil paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, ceramics and a sketchbook from the Royan series, drawings. Bernard Ruiz-Picasso donated 22 works. The remaining 49 items are presented as the result of a free, renewable 10 years loan jointly granted by the two heirs. These 49 exhibits in particular, give a full perspective of Pablo Picasso's 70 years of feverish creativity ranging from "Casagemas Dead", the earliest of these dating to about 1901, to "Woman", a sensual image of a female sitting on a chair which dates back to 1972.
