Picasso, one of the founders of the 20th Century avant-garde art movement cubism, was born in Malaga in 1881.

A spokesman for the museum said: “The exhibition puts into context a significant collection of works from the artist’s childhood and youth, with photographs, maps, objects and documents that show what the town was like during its transition between two centuries.

“This was where he lived with his family, and where other artists worked, such as José Denis Belgrano, Antonio Muñoz Degrain, or Picasso’s own father, José Ruiz Blasco, a selection of whose works are also on display.”
