Precocious genius, visionary and committed artist, the inventor of modern art, seducer, and patriarch: the image of Pablo Picasso has been in constant evolution since he started out at the Bateau-Lavoir in Montmartre.
Focusing on Picasso's public persona, this documentary traces this exceptionally talented artist's mastery of mass media and his role writing his own legend, to the point of subsuming his private life, the man and the artist becoming one. By exploring rare archive material, including family documents, and with analysis provided by art historians and the contemporary artist Jeff Koons, a new light is shone upon the world's most famous painter.
With the participation of: Emilie Bouvard, Philippe Dagen, Stéphane Guégan, Nathalie Heinich, Jeff Koons, Glenn D. Lowry, Didier Ottinger, John Richardson, Guy Scarpetta, Diana Widmaeir Picasso, Maya Widmaeir Picasso and Olivier Widmaeir Picasso
