Musee Picasso


The Chateau Grimaldi, constructed during the 12th century, acted as a fortress and was raised on the foundations of what was once the Greek town of Antipolis. The Chateau Grimaldi later became the residence of the Bishops of Antibes and the studio of famous artist Pablo Picasso.

Jimmy and I went to Antibes last year. (I posted a picture of me outside the museum from Jimmy’s cell phone). Thought I’d share some pictures I took inside the museum. You are not supposed to take pictures inside the museum but there weren’t any signs. I found out when I got yelled at. At least I’m pretty sure that’s what the guard was yelling at me about.

You can take pictures of the remarkable collection of sculpture by Germaine Richier and work by Miró, Bernard Pagès and Anne and Patrick Poirier on permanent view on the terrace. At some point, I’ll get around to posting those pictures.
