Picasso Painting on Glass

A deeply mem­o­rable scene. Picas­so at his home in Val­lau­ris, paint­ing on glass with a cam­era rolling on the oth­er side. The scene is an out­take from Vis­ite à Picas­so (A Vis­it with Picas­so), a 1950 film by Bel­gian film­mak­er Paul Hae­saerts. The full film, run­ning 20 min­utes, can be watched in its entire­ty on Vimeo (or right below). You can find this film in our col­lec­tion of Free Movies Online. For good mea­sure, we have also added an excerpt from the 1956 film Le Mys­tere Picas­so, by Hen­ri-Georges Clouzot, oth­er­wise known for Les dia­boliques (1955). The film is avail­able on YouTube in two parts: Part 1Part 2.
