We happened to be in Malaga on Monday, Picasso’s museum was closed, so we went to Casa Natal de Picasso. It is not big. Since it is a birthplace, it contains some touching personal objects, like Picasso’s christening dress, and very nice pictures from his childhood, with his dad and mum. It also possesses a limited number of prints and ceramics. Actually I felt somewhat disappointed that Picasso's birthplace has been left without his masterpieces. Having seen great expositions of his works in different museums I’d expected to see more in his native place.

Its nice to see where the mistro from the south lived and what he saw as inspiration for his art. Nice cafes around the square too.

The Picasso Fundacion has undergone modernisation and in my opinion a certain sanitisation. Previously it was housed in a courtyarded villa which has now been incorprated into a very modern extension. Picasso left Malaga when he was 19 and never returned - I wonder why? The collection is a poor representaion of the 20th century's most original artist. Just a few early works, no cubist pictures, mostly second rate pictures from the thirties. Some of his ceramics looked like thay had been recovered from the dustbin, in particular a moulded dish that had not been properly fired which was cracked and covered in scorch marks. I'll bet Picasso would have been embarassed if he knew that was on display. (I have a degree in the History of Art) The little bistro in the Fundacion is excellent !!!

The museum is almost worth seeing on its own. Unfortunately they covered the walls in Picasso paintings and ruined this stately building. I suppose if you buy in to his work it'd be worthwhile but I'm not sure this is truly representative of his output. Obviously I'm not a fan, but because he was born here felt compelled and would gladly have the time and money back.

I wouldn't leave Malaga without visiting this place. However, apart from a few personal and family belongings there was not much to see. I would espect more (eg. multimedia activity)
