Exploring the breadth of the artist’s achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso’s career.
The art historian and noted authority on Picasso, Robert Rosenblum introduces these key works while Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art.
