The Mystery of Picasso

1956 Rated NR 1hr 15m

The artist approaches his easel, wields his brush and the painting dances into being before our eyes. Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artist of the 20th century, is making art, and French director Henri-Georges Clouzot is making a movie. This entirely new kind of art documentary captures the moment and the mystery of creativity; for this film, the master created 20 artworks -- all of which were destroyed when the film was completed.
