Filmed through the opposite side of the canvas, a large glass plate, we see the grand brushstrokes of Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet, and playwright Pablo Picasso. This clip is from Visit to Picasso (“Bezoek aan Picasso”), a 1949 documentary film by Belgian filmmaker Paul Haesaerts. It was filmed at Picasso’s home in Vallauris, France.
There are more painting videos in the archives, including A New Republic: The portrait work of artist Kehinde Wiley.
