This exhibit is the third in a three-part series celebrating the 50th year of the museum. This final part of the series showcases various past artists that have had exhibitions in the museum, as well as pays tribute to the museum's namesake: Picasso. Important works of his time are shown to give historical context to the viewers. A single historical narrative is formed by viewing all three parts.

- Venue Description:
Barcelona's tribute to one of its adopted sons, this fabulous collection is displayed in three adjoining medieval palaces. Picasso was born in Málaga but really started his long artistic career here. At Museu Picasso, you can see all of his most important early works, including engravings, lithographs and pottery. The most famous pieces on display include his Harlequin, a portrait of one of his wives, Jacqueline, and the Las Meninas series. Regular temporary exhibitions focus on different aspects of the artist's activities, for example, his research on landscapes or his foray into theater design. In addition, there are some examples of work by artists from the avant-garde movement.
