Performers, Cast and Crew:
Centered around the opening of the Musee Picasso in Paris, this film takes the opportunity to examine the collection created by Picasso, the work he felt to be his personal legacy to the world. The powerful spirit of the artist is echoed in the dramatic theater of Corrida, the ring of the bullfight, and in the images of regional Spain - Gosol, Malaga, Barcelona.
Picasso was avant-garde, traditional, an erotomaniac. He is a legend whose paintings almost everyone can visualise today. His works and character had an enormous influence on 20th century art. As an artist and man, he is still one-of-a-kind, rather like the collection of his works on display at the Picasso Museum in Paris.
Didier Baussy-Oulianoff presents them, sorts them according to period and establishes what inspired them. Baussy's analysis also explains why some of the paintings on display were so close to Picasso's heart that he never sold them, preferring to hold on to them until he died.
HE WANTED TO BE A PAINTER AND BECAME PICASSO
