Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum, inaugurated in 2003, currently exhibits more than 300 of Picasso's works, together giving a thorough notion of his complete artistic career, as well as the different tech-niques and styles he used. The Picasso Museum is housed in the Palacio de Buenavista, a beautiful building of Andalucian Renaissance architecture, and was brought about with the coop-eration of and donations from Christine and Bernard Ruiz Picasso, the daughter-in-law and the grandson of the artist.

The museum's permanent collection consists of more than 200 oil-paintings, engravings, drawings and ceramics ranging from the 19th century up to 1972. The most important works are Olga Kokhlova con mantilla and Retrato de Paulo con goro blanco.
