Booked a private tour with the express purpose of learning about Picasso. The Runner Bean folks accommodated this request and gave us an unforgettable experience.
Eli, our fabulous and knowledgeable guide, met us at our hotel then showed us sights in the Gothic Quarter that we hadn’t even noticed in the 3 prior days we were staying in the neighborhood! The reason for this was to provide background information about the area, learn how it influenced Picasso and to visit places that he frequented. With this foundation we then proceeded to the Picasso Museum.
Eli led us through the various salons. She highlighted items and linked them back to what she had explained earlier about the city and Picasso’s life. She provided historical context for the works as well as insight into his artistic responses to his life experiences. Thanks to Eli we left with a greater appreciation for Picasso; how he challenged convention, pushing himself to experiment and capture the essential nature of his subject.
