Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous painters in history. Born in Spain, he was a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and even designed some clothes for the theater. While he was born in Spain, he spent most of his adult life in France.

Considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, he is famous for paintings like Guernica and his art movement Cubism. He was the pioneer of cubism, an avant-garde art movement that revolutionized European painting and sculpture. A lot of people consider cubism the most influential art movement of the 20th century.

But how did Picasso get so famous? This documentary tells his story from rags to riches. Nowadays, his paintings are among the most expensive ones. One reason for that is they are in short supply. Some of his paintings sell for more than $100 million.
