  The Picasso Museum - Eugenio Arias Collection, exhibits an unusual collection of works given by the artist Pablo Ruiz Picasso to his barber, Eugenio Arias, during a long period of friendship that lasted 26 years.

Eugenio Arias was born in Buitrago del Lozoya in 1909. At the end of Spanish Civil War, he went into exile to France and settled his barber's shop in Vallauris in 1946, where he met Picasso, who at that time was living in Vallauris in his villa "La Galoise".

Eugenio Arias transerred his collection to the extinguished Diputación de Madrid in 1982. Set up in Buitrago del Lozoya Town Hall, it was the first Museum created and opened by the Regional Government of Madrid on March 15 th, 1985.

    The collection
    The Museo Picasso - Colección Eugenio Arias de Buitrago del Lozoya currently boasts 71 works of a widely varied nature: drawings, graphic work, pottery, a pyrograph and an etched plate of iron dross, as well as exhibition posters and books with personal dedications.

The collection is rounded out by eight numbered pottery pieces from the collection of the former Provincial Government of Madrid, which came to the museum in the late 1980s, and by other elements not created by Picasso but contributed subsequently by Arias, such as photographs by André Villers and a sculpted bust of Picasso by F. Aguilar. The Regional Government of Madrid also continues to acquire works of interest for the museum.
