Learn about Cubism at the Picasso Museum
The museum of Pablo Picasso in El Born focuses on his formative years. Picasso lived in Barcelona for several years as an apprentice artist and the thriving city roused his interest in new methods and techniques prior to the Cubism era. He began by painting people and scenes that he was familiar with, streets, farmhouses, families and views from his artist’s studio, before delving headfirst into pioneering the Cubism movement. This was his response to a fast-changing environment. Picasso’s new way of seeing things reflected the modern age and perspectives, depicting the different ways people perceive the world and people around us. This fascinating museum allows insight into his life and work during this time and helps visitors gain greater understanding of events which caused a shift to his radical art pieces of the early 1900s and beyond.
