picasso museum reopensThe wait was long – and it is not over quite yet. But, I am sure, on Saturday, October 25, I am going to say that it was worth waiting for. On that day Paris’s Picasso Museum is to reopen after a five-year closure for renovation. And on that day I will be there! That date was chosen because it is the anniversary of Picasso’s birth 133 years ago. He died in 1973 aged 92. Superstitious, when he was asked, by family, friends and colleagues, to make a will and to decide on his burial – where it was to be, for example – he bluntly refusedm saying that should he make plans for his funeral, he will be dead the very next day.
