“Give me a museum and I’ll fill it.” Pablo Picasso

The Musée Picasso Paris was built on the generosity of Pablo Picasso’s heirs and important patrons. Through gifts, donations, inheritances and acceptances in lieu, the national collections have been enriched with masterpieces. The museum’s collection belongs to you, so why not take part in enriching and developing it and sharing it with a global audience?

● Monetary donations: donations made in cash (cheque or bank transfer).

● Donations of works of art to the museum’s collections (subject to its acceptance by the museum’s acquisitions commission and, depending on its value, the Conseil artistique des musées nationaux (France’s national museums arts council).

● Donations of ownership retaining usufruct, in which case the property is ceded to the museum only after the death of the donor.

Donations made by private individuals domiciled in France are entitled, under certain conditions, to personal income tax relief equivalent to 66% of the value of the donation (subject to an annual limit of 20% of the individual’s taxable income with the option to carry forward the surplus over the following five years).

● Legacies, in favour of the Musée Picasso Paris, of an artwork to expand the collections or of a sum of money to support the museum.

● Acceptances in lieu constitute an exceptional method of payment allowing the donor to be exempt from tax liability (donations, division of assets, inheritance tax) by donating works of high artistic or historical value to the State. Acceptance in lieu is an effective way for enriching the museum’s collections.
