Wednesday Nite Film Series: Biographies - Le Mystère Picasso
Le Mystère Picasso : The Mystery of Picasso (original 1956, renewed 1982, 75 min.)
Explores the mind and motivations of Pablo Picasso as he creates over fifteen works before the camera. Using a specially designed transparent 'canvas' to provide an unobstructed view, Picasso creates as the camera records. 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, until at last the work is complete.
