The giant of Cubism, the artistic movement which ushered in the 20th century and became one of the pillars of that century’s artistic achievement, always wanted part of his work to come home to be displayed in his native city, but Pablo Picasso never got to see this dream fulfilled during his lifetime. In 2013, after years of effort, the Malaga Picasso Museum finally opened its doors, in which 233 original works of this malagueño genius are displayed – and that’s just the permanent collection. The painstaking museum team, descendants of the painter himself, organises a constant flow of cultural events, exhibitions, and programs mostly related to Picasso. The works exhibited here are not solely from the artist’s Cubist period (some would say his most popular), but rather trace the journey of his entire life, and are curated to contextualise and explain each stage thereof to visitors. In addition, although it’s difficult to compete with the genius of the maestro, the building which houses the museum is in itself a work of art. The 15th-century Palacio de Bellavista has long been considered one of this city’s most important landmarks – and in fact has been since 1939 designated a National Monument. A historic, distinguished, and fitting venue for a genius who is this city’s most important ambassador.
