"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."
