Pablo Picasso was a famous 19th-century Spanish artist from Málaga. He was known for his talent in multiple art media. These include painting, sculpting, assembling, engraving and many more. He was also known for having multiple lovers, whom he used as inspiration for many of his pieces. The romantic and erotic experiences he had with these lovers had a particular influence on his engravings of nude women.
The Erotic Museum holds two of his engravings, which illustrate multiple nude women. The museum is extremely fortunate to be able to display two pieces by Picasso and it is definitely worth a visit.
