Picasso Foundation Museo Casa Natal

The Foundation is located in the Casa Natal de Pablo Ruiz Picasso (building where Picasso was born). It was declared Monumento Histórico-Artístico de Interés Nacional (Historical-Artistic Monument of National Interest) the 25th March, 1983.

The main aim of the institution is to promote, enrich and spread the artist's figure and work from his homeland, organizing several activities (exhibitions, conferences, publications, didactic programs...) and creating a centre of documentation specialized in the artist.

The Foundation is nowadays presided by the Mayor of the city, Mr Francisco de la Torre Prados. Mr Miguel Briones, delegate for Culture of the City Council, is the vice-chairman, and is directed by Mrs Lourdes Moreno Molina.

The history of the Foundation has been for twenty years the history of the re-encounter between Picasso and Málaga. Throughout the years of its existence, the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Foundation has managed to assemble a collection of art works containing over 4.000 items produced by more than 200 different artists.
