We are a contemporary art museum. Our collection and exhibitions show the way in which we see the world and see ourselves: the objects corresponding to history and the society that created them; objects that are conserved, studied and enhanced with the aim of reaching a better knowledge of our environment and of ourselves. Four fundamental principles guide our work: a critical reading of history, a critical reading of the territory, the impact on the city of Medellín and the social appropriation of art. Our project was founded in 1881 as a cultural and educational project, making us one of the oldest museums in Colombia. We have one of the largest collections in the region, with 6,000 works and historical documents. Our exhibitions and our educational-community projects turn art into a fundamental tool to help us reflect our nature as a society.

The name which predominates in the development of art throughout the twentieth century, and to which many of the revolutionary changes are ascribed, is that of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). Not only was he one of the most influential artists, he was also one of the most versatile. This beautifully produced book surveys the whole range of his paintings, from the haunting works of the Blue Period, to the brute power of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the lyrical sweetness of his family portraits, the revolutionary developments of Cubism and the later manifold experimentations with form and colour. Roland Penrose's introductory essay on Picasso was first published in 1971, when the great master was still alive. Penrose was acclaimed in his own right as a painter, and his long friendship with Picasso gave him unique insight into his life and work. David Lomas has written a preface introducing us to the friendship between these two artists. He has also written notes to each full-page colour plate, discussing the picture in detail, making this a perfect introduction to the twentieth century's most famous artist.
