Cécile Debray, Director of the Musée de l'Orangerie, Appointed President of the Musée National Picasso-Paris

The Minister of Culture, the President of the Republic has appointed Cécile Debray as President of the National Picasso-Paris Museum.

On the proposal of the Minister of Culture, the President of the Republic has appointed Cécile Debray as President of the National Picasso-Paris Museum.

Since 2017, Cécile Debray has been Director of the Musée de l'Orangerie. After starting her career as director of the Châteauroux museums, she was curator at the Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris and responsible for modern collections at the Musée national d'art moderne – Centre Pompidou.

Curator of several important international exhibitions (Préhistoire, une énigme moderne, Matisse, Cézanne, Picasso… L'aventure des Stein, Elles@Centrepompidou...), she has, since her arrival at the Musée de l'Orangerie, given this institution a new visibility, by an original programming highlighting its specificity in the Parisian landscape.

At the head of the Picasso-Paris Museum, which houses the largest public Picassian collection in the world, Cécile Debray will strive to keep alive, in the 21st century, the work of Pablo Picasso, an essential artist of modernity. It will seek to strengthen the museum’s attractiveness by seeking to retain the public in the Ile-de-France region, while continuing the territorial and international development of the institution, particularly in view of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death in 2023.

Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin would like to welcome the action of Laurent Le Bon at the head of the establishment, to which he has, since 2014, given an unprecedented influence.
