Young Picasso is the “latest cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from the world’s leading historians and arts critics.” It’s a psychological autopsy of one of the most brilliant visual artists in modern times.
Director, Phil Grabsky plots the life of Pablo Picasso as he draws on the sophisticated expertise and vast collection of Picasso’s works and memorabilia from 5 major European museums – Museo Picasso Málaga, Fundación Picasso-Museo Casa Natal, Málaga, where he was born; Museu Picasso de Barcelona, where the most extensive collection of his early works is held; Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, Barcelona and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, in the city Picasso called home.
In addition to his rare and renowned paintings, are letters from friends, lovers and family. Historians and curators delve into the mind of Picasso, allowing us to rediscover and appreciate a new meaning to his masterpieces.
“A smell of mould and neglect caught me by the throat but i forced myself to stay to examine theses masks. All these objects people had created with a sacred magical purpose to serve as intermediaries between them and the unknown… And then I understood what painting really meant. It’s not an aesthetic process, it’s a form of magic that interposes itself between us and the hostile universe. A means of seizing power by imposing a form on our terrors as well as on our desires…. The day I understood that, I found my path”
