Picasso: Joie de Vivre

Picasso's joy in living is revealed in the Picasso Museum at Antibes. In the summer of 1946, the whole of Europe was recovering from the strain of the war years. Picasso was staying in the south of France where the medieval and long-empty castle at Antibes was offered to him with the idea of making it a permanent Picasso museum. For four months the master worked at sculpture, painting, pottery and covering the walls of the castle with vast murals, each a paean of praise to the new life coming to fruition about him.
