Exhibition on Screen presents: Young Picasso – Including Q&A with Phil Grabsky
Thursday 21st February 2019 - Starts 7.30pm
TICKET PRICE: £12
Many films have dealt with Picasso’s later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? Being somewhat overlooked, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. The film explores the influence of each one on the artist, focusing on specific artworks from these early years.
Phil Grabsky will be doing a Q&A after the screening
Looking carefully at two key early periods – namely the Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a key painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, which Picasso painted at 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in those cities, the film explains how this esteemed artist rose to such great heights.
