The Picasso Museum, part of Antibes-Juan les Pins' Museum was founded on the ancient acropolis of the Greek town of Antipolis. Up until the beginning of the seventeenth century, the castle was inhabited by theGrimaldi family.
In 1925, the castle was bought by the town of Antibes and transformed into a history and archaeology museum. Only in 1966 was the museum named Picasso and became the first museum dedicated to a living artist.
During his time spent in Antibes, Picasso realized many works (paintings, drawings, tapestries, and ceramics): the collection given by the artist to the town forms part of the museum collection.
This collection will be completed by numerous donations and acquisitions by the town.
