I loved everything about the museum - fabulous art, enthusiastic staff and the many artist's interpretations of Ceret itself. A must for Picasso lovers. Unmissable!

We are regular visitors to Ceret and always look forward to visiting the Musee. The museum is not large but the exhibition spaces are beautifully laid out and, when we have visited, never crowded; always a bonus! The museum shop is small but offers a good range of books and particularly ceramics from the area.

This is a unique modern art collection with a wonderful display of commerative plates by Picasso on a theme of the bullfight. The collection is small but highly interesting with works by Matisse and many other French artists of the 20th century. There's always an individual exhibition on display, a great gallery shop selling exhibits and greetings cards, books and... More

Well laid out and not too large museum. Loads of work by the master, including lots of painting on ceramics. Major display of works about bull fighting.

We were amazed to find an extensive Picasso exhibit regarding regarding his love of bullfighting including photos, sketches, paintings and ceramics. This may be a travelling exhibit. Also there is a famous dove drawing by Picasso apparently done for the museum. In the small collection were a couple Chagalls and a Gris (Le Journal) as well.

We were looking forward to seeing a collection of work from the various artistic luminaries who have made Ceret their home, but were surprised to find that every single piece on display was to do with bullfighting. That said, it was an impressive collection, with some very remarkable pieces.

This museum showcases several artists who, mostly unknown outside France, made an obviously seminal contribution to the evolution of Cubism as a modern art style.

In addition, there was a retrospective exhibition of art representing bullfighting as a social and cultural tradition that was important in Catalonia of which this area... More
