YOUNG PICASSO

Many films have dealt with Picasso's later years - the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin?

Somewhat overlooked, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. The film explores the influence of each on the artist, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. 
 
Looking carefully at two key early periods - the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period - the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a key painting in the history of art - Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, which Picasso painted at 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to such great heights.
