The Mystery Of Picasso

Henri-Georges Clouzot, best known for his classic French thriller Les Diaboliques, took
on a different mystery in 1956: the creative process and the essence of an artist, namely
Pablo Picasso.

Utilising transparent canvases so the camera of Claude Renoir could directly capture an
artwork s creation, Picasso created 20 artworks for the film. At first, these are simple
sketches in marker, but each grows in complexity until the final reel, when The Mystery
of Picasso switches to a CinemaScope ratio and bursts into colour.

One of the greatest documentary portraits of an artist of work, this release is
accompanied by two other films of Picasso: Paul Haesaerts BAFTA-winning A Visit to
Picasso from 1949 and a charming home movie by fellow artist Man Ray.

  • Standard Definition presentation, from materials supplied by Gaumont
  • Original French mono audio
  • Optional English subtitles
  • A Visit to Picasso, Paul Haesaerts 1949 BAFTA-winning documentary on the painter,
