Visiting Le Musée de Picasso at Antibes

Germain Richier

During our visit of Antibes, some of us wanted to visit the Picasso Museum which is located in the old Grimaldi castle overlooking the town and the sea.  Pablo Picasso lived in this former castle for 6 months in 1946 and it's been the first museum dedicated to the master in the world.
A bit to my uninformed surprise, there ratio of paintings of Pablo Picasso himself was rather low as the museum expanded its collection with a significant collection of Nicolas de Staël. His painting "Le Concert" is one of the eyecatchers with its wall covering size. Also paintings from Hans Hartung and Anna-Eva Bergman are well respresented thanks to contributions of their foundation as well as other art.  My favourite was one by Hans Hartung.
