Beyoncé and the Jay Z can’t seem to get enough of art. The Carter family’s recent, self-documented European tour included visits to the Louvre in Paris and London’s Frieze Art Fair, David Zwirner Gallery and the Arts Club, where they met with Anish Kapoor. The star couple’s snaps were wildly popular, enthralling social media users (see “Beyoncé and Jay Z Pose with Mona Lisa”)

Yesterday Beyoncé was back in Paris to take a look around the newly-reopened Picasso Museum, Complex Magazine reports. In a series of photos posted to her blog, the pop star shared some of her favorite artworks, and a shot of herself posing next to a sketch of Picasso’s lover and artistic muse Françoise Gilot, to whom she bears a striking resemblance. Husband Jay Z or the couple’s young daughter Blue Ivy were nowhere to be seen.

After a lengthy and expensive period of expansion and redevelopment work, which finished three years behind schedule and €22 million over budget, the Picasso Museum finally reopened on October 26. The conversion doubled the size of the museum’s exhibition space. (see “Picasso Museum Reopens, Late and Over Budget)
