I had such a great time this afternoon. I went to see the exhibition "Sculpture" at the Picasso Museum and I just loved it. The museum (Hôtel de Salé, one of the most beautiful mansions of Paris) is just in itself worth the visit.
I didn't get the chance to see the museum since it last re-opened after a long period of works (5 years). And honestly, the works were very much worth it. The museum is much bigger and convenient now. It's so obvious that Hotel de Salé is such an amazing building. There is even a coffe shop on the roof top where it's very pleasant to rest for a coffee espacially when it's sunny. The garden, behind the museum, is open to the visitors too.
Until August 28th, the museum presents an international exhibition dedicated to sculptures. The idea is to contemplate Picasso's sculptures from different angles. The exhibition features over 240 pieces. I very much liked the serie of six glasses of absinthe (from 1914); it's shown for the first time in Europe in its entirety.
I very warmy recommend this exhibition
