Often regarded as one as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor who spent most of his adult life living and working in Paris. Throughout his early years, Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent, as he experimented with different techniques and ideas before taking influence from the famous French artist Henry Matisse, where he began to explore more radical styles, to become known as one of the leaders of modern art.

The tour will begin by exploring Picasso’s deep connection with Paris. Among the unique experiences, will be a private visit to the famous Picasso Museum, including an exclusive backstage visit to the Georges Pompidou Museum, where guests will have access to some of the artworks never seen on display.
