The Mystery of Picasso is a 1956 film, made by Henri-Georges Clouzot.

It aims to unravel Picasso’s process of painting and of artistic production of metaphysical meta-projects in just 75 minutes.

This film documents the production of 20 original works by Picasso. Here we see how Picasso’s earlier works were made principally in black ink, with little tinges of color at certain places and gradually the proportion and range of colors increased.

It highlights the main subjects of Picasso’s paintings, which were mainly women and women’s breasts, bullfighting, Mediterranean scenes, though they were abstract in quality, the occasional old school cubist flourish.

  1. Não poderia deixar de prestar minha homenagem a Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santíssima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, ufffa! =D ou, simplesmente Pablo Picasso, nesse dia de hoje, que, se vivo fosse, estaria completando 130 anos!

  2. I remember when the Ufiizi was bombed in Italy – the article I saw showed art works which were permanantly lost. I felt a great sense of loss. I thought it might be interesting to recreate some of the works for posterity. I didn’t have the talent or the resources and I was frustrated for 15 years. Then I see Picasso making art in a simple way. And I hear these works were destroyed. I decided to relieve my frustration by recreating non-existant works. I wanted to share it with others.
