THE PICASSO MYSTERY

BY HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT

THE PICASSO MYSTERY


The camera, placed in front of the easel on which is stretched
a paper and not behind Picasso, captures the path of the creative thought of the painter. We witness the pure creative act, without the intervention of any exterior picturesque element.

Clouzot sets up a device at once simple and eloquent, with the complicity of a Picasso more actor than ever, tempted with jubilation by this new experience. The Mystery Picasso is the most prestigious and most famous attempt to film an artist at work, to enter the creation.
