Pablo Picasso created his artworks in large mansions and historic buildings, such as the castles of Antibes, Boisgeloup and Villa La Californie. The architecture of the spaces where he created, was recalled inside the Hôtel Salé, currently the Picasso Museum. That later in the year 1979 and 1985 it was renewed, becoming a place for the exhibition and preservation of art.
The Picasso Museum includes artworks from all periods, techniques that he used and sculptures by the artist. As for the architecture of the building, in the centre, the stair that takes us to the first floor was the main component. Walls and corners with bright paintings that contrast the matt colour so that the walls flowed.
His works can be shown today thanks to the heirs of Pablo Picasso and sponsors, who built the museum because of their donations and inheritances. In short, with all its restorations and reforms, the National Museum of Picasso in Paris was inaugurated in 1985.
