Lonely Planet review
Pablo Picasso once wrote, "If you want to see the Picassos from Antibes, you have to see them in Antibes". Spectacularly positioned overlooking the sea, 14th-century Château Grimaldi served as Picasso’s studio from July to December 1946. The museum now houses an excellent collection of the master’s paintings, lithographs, drawings and ceramics, as well as a photographic record of the artist at work.
Particularly poignant is Picasso’s La Joie de Vivre (The Joy of Life), one in a series of 25 paintings from the Antipolis Suite. The young flower girl, surrounded by flute-playing fauns and mountain goats, symbolises Françoise Gilot, Picasso's 23-year-old lover, with whom he lived in neighbouring Golfe-Juan.
