Artist: Picasso, Pablo

Artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was one of the greatest Painters, Printmakers, and Sculptors of the 20th Century, and a founder of Modern Art. This unique film, a Cannes Film Festival Selection, reveals unknown aspects of Picasso’s work and personality, and contains over 600 of his paintings, sculptures and ceramics, many never before seen in public. In an unprecedented collaboration, Picasso gave filmmaker Edward Quinn unrestrained access to film him in Mougins, France, where Picasso lived and worked. Both a Biography and an Art History Documentary, the film uses many flashback sequences showing the mutations and evolution of his work in progress, as we chronologically follow his works and life in parallel. 

 

Part 1

(1881-1937):

Starting in 1896, when he was only 15, the film trace Picasso’s artistic development, exploring his work as a youth, from the Blue Period to the Pink Period (Rose period) and his first steps into Cubism in 1906.  Then we discover the Chrysteline Period where he went from Analytical to Synthetic Cubism until entering his Neoclassical period in 1918.  Part 1 culminates with the painting of his masterpiece “ Guernica” in 1937.

 

From his marriages with Olga Koklova and Jacqueline Roque, to his friendships with Dora Maar, Fernande Olivier, Marie-Therese Walter, Francoise Gilot, Jean Cocteau, & Gertrude Stein, to the birth of his children, Paul and Maya, Part 1 of this film presents an unrivaled look into Picasso’s marvelous work, as well as his eventful personal life.

 

Edward Quinn’s film is truly of great historical importance to the art world. Jacqueline (Roque) Picasso has given it her complete endorsement.  In her own words, this film “is of exemplary honesty and objectivity and puts Picasso in true perspective…the painter completely devoted to his destiny as a painter.”
