Every first sunday of the month the entrance to the Picasso Museum in Paris is free and the rest of the days the ticket it is only 11 euros. This morning I got up early to get there for a visit and I was not disappointed. The Picasso Museum in is the district of Le Marais, the jewish town of Paris.
There is something about being there and watching the real thing rather than seeing all in pictures or books. You know that the hands of the artist have been there touching and his eyes looking at his work of art as he was creating it all.
Once Picasso found his way, which he did very quickly as he said: "I search not, I find", then it had to be done fast, I mean, there were no time for "perfection" because photography was already invented and they reflect a perfect copy of the reality. When an idea came through his head, he had to materialize it fast and it is fair to say that the public of his time did not admire his work.
He did not paint to please people. And now let's start our walk through this wonderful art gallery, the visit is organized chronologically in this inaugural exhibition.
