Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius
A film by Michael Blackwood
1981 (US) 89mins 16mm colour
Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius centres on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso’s career. Told through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives and critics, the film is an assessment of the 20th century’s best known artist and his vast achievements. Art historian Robert Rosenblum, the founder of the Musée Picasso, Dominique Bozo, critic Clement Greenberg, and Picasso’s biographer, Roland Penrose, share their expertise on the artist, presenting important aspects of his career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have since had to contend with the scope of Picasso’s vision. Artists including Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso’s oeuvre has affected their own artistic practice.
