Exhibition On Screen presents
YOUNG PICASSO

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was also one of the most prolific. Many films have dealt with his later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends – but where did this all begin? Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each, working closely with all three Picasso Museums, to explore each city’s influence on the artist. Looking carefully at his so-called Blue Period and Rose Period, the film takes us all the way back to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Though Picasso was merely 25 years old, his painting shocked the art world… and changed it irrevocably. Not rated. 85 minutes.
