The Mystery of Picasso: Revealed!

15 Nov

As the ends of the semester looms nearer, creative fatigue is difficult to avoid. If you’re in need of inspiration at the moment, look no further than good ol’ impressionist master Pablo Picasso.

The specific process of many great artists is often a secret between creator and canvas, but in the 1956 French documentary “Le mystère Picasso,” Pablo’s creative approach is revealed. Here, Picasso creates a series of works on transparent canvas; a camera films the other side, and the lucky audience watches the piece emerge. This process is overlain with music, and the result is exquisite. Whether you rid yourself of distractions and settle down for 78 minutes of uninterrupted hypnotic magic, or pop it in as a creative backdrop, this documentary is a must.

Treat yourself to an early nondenominational holiday gift, and buy the thing:
