Museum of Pablo Picasso - level 2
Pablo Picasso was born in 1881 in Spain, but he spent most of his life in France. He died in 1973. A museum with more than 5000 of the artist’s paintings, sculptures, prints and personal archives re-opened in Paris.
A 17th-century mansion contains the museum. The renovation cost about 52 million euros and it tripled the size of the exhibition space. People expect one million visitors to the museum every year. The renovation of this building took five years.
Difficult words: mansion (a large, beautiful house), renovation (when people fix up something and make it better), exhibition space (place for artwork).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
