The Mystery of Picasso
Director: Henri-Georges Clouzot Run Time: 78 min. Rating: PG Release Year: 1956 Language: French
Starring: Claude Renoir, Henri-Georges Clouzot, Pablo Picasso
Using a specially designed transparent ‘canvas’ to provide an unobstructed view, Picasso creates as the camera rolls. He begins with simple works that take shape after only a single brush stroke. He then progresses to more complex paintings, in which he repeatedly adds and removes elements, transforming the entire scene at will, until at last the work is complete.
Presented in partnership with the Mint Museum. Attendees of The Mystery of Picasso at The Independent Picture House will be eligible to register for a FREE guided tour of the Picasso exhibition at the Mint (9.30am on April 8th, space is limited).
