Young Picasso

How did a provincial Spanish boy, rumored to draw before he could speak, become one of the greatest artists of the 20th century? In this absorbing look at the people and places that informed the young Picasso’s genius, you’ll visit his Málaga birthplace, Barcelona, and Madrid, where, as a boy, he first saw Velázquez, Goya, and El Greco in the Prado Museum. We then follow the 19-year-old to the Montmartre and Moulin Rouge of 1900s bohemian Paris, where he encounters Toulouse-Lautrec and other painters and sees the art of earlier masters and the African sculpture that would soon inspire his Cubist masterpiece Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Interviews with historians, curators, and the artist’s grandson help fill out a vivid portrait.
