Synopsis

With this film, Clouzot gives viewers the chance to see the techniques of the most influential painter of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso. Filmed in the painter’s studio, this unmissable documentary shows us, stroke by stroke, the birth of a masterpiece: we see Picasso in the act of creating paintings for the camera which he subsequently destroyed, so that they only exist on film. In this unique film, the whole process of creating a work of art is shown, from the beginnings with Picasso’s simple marker drawings in black and white, until he gradually progresses to full scale collages and oil paintings.
