The Picasso Museum of Barcelona, inaugurated in 1963, has the most important and exhaustive collection of Pablo Picasso's youth and training works, especially those that he made between 1895 and 1904, years in which the young artist lived in our city.
His relations with Catalan modernism and, more specifically, with the artists and intellectuals who had their meeting place in the legendary establishment of Els Quatre Gats, are reflected in a series of works, especially in the portraits he made of various tertullians of the brewery. The Picasso Museum occupies five medieval palaces in the Montcada street of the old quarter of the city.

It also includes an important representation of works from 1917, the series Las Meninas (1957), and a complete collection of engravings.

The Picasso Museum increases its collection with a documentary collection belonging to the publishing house Gili and the family Gili-Torra. This collection, which has been partly donated and partly purchased, including drawings, gouaches, prints, books and other items offers more information about the Malaga artist and his relationship with Barcelona. However it will take a few years yet before this new collection will become an exhibition open to the public.
