The Mystery of Picasso

The Mystery of Picasso

A Feature film by Henri-Georges Clouzot

Produced by Filmsonor Marceau

Release in France : 18/05/1956

    Synopsis

    Using a specially designed transparent 'canvas' to provide an unobstructed view, Picasso creates as the camera rolls. He begins with simple works that take shape after only a single brush stroke. He then progresses to more complex paintings, in which he repeatedly adds and removes elements, transforming the entire scene at will, until at last the work is complete.
