Time-lapse Picasso..

Had a VHS copy of this once – taped off the TV donkey’s years ago and long since lost.
Made by Henri-Georges Clouzot in 1956. He rigged up a screen that Picasso could paint onto and filmed the process from beginning to end..

I remember at the time thinking that, generally, I really liked the pieces when they were about two thirds of the way through the process, and that he’d lost them by the end, trying too hard for the camera perhaps. This one I like all the way..
