Young Picasso


Exhibition on screen at Spotlight Theatre.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents an extraordinary detective story which looks in detail at the elements that drove one small boy from southern Spain to great heights.

Young Picasso visits Malaga, Barcelona and Paris and explores their influence on Picasso, 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 critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old.

Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris, Young Picasso offers unique insight into the artist's masterpieces at each of these remarkable institutions as well as additional insight from historians, curators, letters from friends and lovers, and Picasso's grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso.
