Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) was born in Malaga in the south of Spain on 25th October 1881.

In 1885 the Ruiz Picasso family moved to Barcelona, where arguably the world’s greatest painter spent his formative years and began his professional career as an artist.

Pablo Picasso’s time in Barcelona is well documented and most of the places where Picasso lived, studied and hung out with friends from 1895 to 1904 in Barcelona are known. Picasso's life in Barcelona was very much in the medieval part of Barcelona, called Ciutat Vella and down around the Barcelona harbour and Port Vell.

The Picasso family first lived for a few months on street Passeig Isabel II, 4. They then moved to the nearby street Carrer de la Reina Cristina 3, which is where they lived when Picasso was an art student at the La Llotja School of Fine Arts for two years. Artist Joan Miró later studied at the same school.

In 1986 the Picasso family moved to Carrer de la Mercè 3 and young Picasso worked in his first studio on Carrer de la Plata 4. Today this is a 5 star boutique hotel called Hotel Serras
In 1897 the Barcelona cafe and restaurant Els Quatre Gats opened on Carrer de Montsió 3. This cafe cbecame a popular hang-out for Picasso and his artist friends.

One of Picasso's first exhibitions was at Els Quatre Gats. Picasso's also designed the menu for the Els Quatre Gats and due to his fame the artwork is still in use at the cafe to this day. Pablo Picasso studied at the Barcelona art school, La Llotja (now called the Reial Acadèmia Catalana de Belles Arts de Sant Jordi)  and worked in various studios during his years in Barcelona.

None of the studio locations have Picasso exhibits now, but it’s fun to walk in his footsteps his early years in Barcelona and get a feel for the kind of life he must have lived. All the locations of Picasso studios are in Barcelona's old city  Cuitat Vella.

Picasso also lived at Riera de Sant Joan 17 - a street that no longer exists. It was demolished when Via Laietana street was built in 1907. In April 1904 Picasso moved to Paris. He returned for brief stays on various occasions, but he never lived in Barcelona again.

The Barcelona Picasso Museum is very much an expression of his time in Barcelona. It houses the most important collection of his early work in the world. You can also find ceramic works by Picasso in the Barcelona ceramico museum 

The world's greatest artist, Pablo Ruiz Picasso, died of a heart attack at the grand age of 91 on 8th April 1973 at his hilltop villa Notre-Dame-de-Vie located in Mougins, France. He was buried on the 10th April 1973 in the gardens of his castle, Château de Vauvenargues in Bouches-du-Rhône which is near Aix-en-Provence in France.

Picasso's grave is adorned with his sculpture 'Woman with the vase' (1933) which was first exhibited during the World exhibition of 1937 in Paris. The Château de Vauvenargues property is still owned by the Picasso family and until 2009 was not open to the public.

In 2009 for the first time the building was partially open to the public for the summer by Catherine Hutin, a daughter of Jacqueline Picasso. Contact the tourist office in Aix-en-Provence for more information about visits in the summer.
