An online portal with access to thousands of Picasso’s artworks, photographs, and related memorabilia is now available online courtesy of the Picasso Museum in Paris.

The artist’s rare archives were released ahead of a dedicated study center slated to open near the museum later this year, Radio France Internationale reported on Sunday. The center is intended for researchers and artists in residence.

This digital portal, however, makes accessible the museum’s vast collection of Picasso artworks, essays, conferences, podcasts, and interviews. A total of 19,000 photos, which have never been seen by the public, are included.

An additional 200,000 texts from Picasso’s workshops are also slated to be digitized and added to the portal in the coming years.

The Spanish painter and sculptor is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, most notably as co-founder of the Cubist movement with Georges Braque. Born in 1881, he lived most of his life in France through his death in 1973. In 1992, his family archives became entrusted to the French state, which has continued to oversee them.

Last year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the painter’s death, there were a number of exhibitions highlighting his lasting legacy.
