In 1923, Picasso made Paris his home, creating his most memorable and lasting works here. After his death in 1973, his family � faced with an astronomical tax debt � donated more than 3,288 works from his estate, including his own private collection of contemporary art. This collection houses complete works by Picasso including sculptures, sketches and paintings. Displayed in chronological order in the elegant, restored H�tel Sal�, the works make an informative statement of creativity, continuity, and genius. They also give credence to his famous motto, "I do not seek, I find." The H�tel Salé was named after the salt-tax farmer who built this most impressive of Parisian mansions back in the mid-17th c. (salé means salty in French). All of Paris has flocked to the museum since it reopened in the fall of 2014 after extensive renovations.
