Musée Picasso information
‘If you want to see the Picassos from Antibes, you have to see them in Antibes.’ Pablo Picasso
The 14th-century Château Grimaldi served as Picasso’s studio from July to December 1946. The museum now houses an excellent collection of his works and fascinating photos of him.
The works from Picasso displayed here are extremely varied – lithographs, paintings, drawings and ceramics – showing how versatile and curious an artist he was. The museum also has a fantastic room dedicated to Nicolas de Staël, another painter who adopted Antibes as his home town.
