The story behind one of the world’s most famous artists will be told in a documentary.
Pablo Picasso remains one of the greatest artists of all time, despite his death in 1973.
Exhibition On Screen: Young Picasso will follow the prolific artists beginnings and how he became famous.
Many films have dealt with his later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. Now Picasso’s upbringing and learning ahead of his extraordinary achievements will be told in this film.
The film looks at three key cities – Malaga, Barcelona and Paris – and Picasso’s visits to each and how he explored his influences.
The two key periods of Picasso’s work will be looked at in the film, the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period.
It takes the audience all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – the Les Demoiselles d’Avignon.
It was a painting which shocked the art world but resulted in a irrevocable change, and the artist was only 25 years old.
The film explains how he rose to great heights as the director, Phil Grabsky, works closely with the three Picasso museums.
Picasso is still one of the most influential artists of the 20th century as is well-known for co-founding the Cubist movement and the invention of constructed sculpture.
The Times has once again teamed up with the Curzon cinema to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see the film.
