In advance of the March 10 appearance of Laurent Le Bon, Président du Musée Picasso, at the Arts Arena, ArtsArenaPLUS members are invited to a private guided tour of the museum. The Musée Picasso Paris collection comprises over 5,000 works and tens of thousands of archived pieces. For its quality and scope, as well as the range of art forms it encompasses, the collection is unique in the world presenting both Picasso’s complete painted, sculpted, engraved and illustrated œuvre and a precise record—through sketches, studies, drafts, notebooks, etchings in various stages, photographs, illustrated books, films and documents—of the artist’s creative process. Housed in the magnificent Hôtel de Salé in the Marais, the museum was closed for renovation for five years, and only re-opened in October, 2014 under the new leadership of Mr. Le Bon. The Arts Arena is grateful to the Musée Picasso for this invitation to its members.
