Power of Art – Picasso
Released in 2006 in the U.K., this clip is part of a video of a Simon Schama TV series entitled “Power of Art” which recounts a glimpse of the prolific, confounding, violent and revolutionary art and life of arguably the greatest artist of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso.
Pablo Diego Jose’ Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Mari’a de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santi’sima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, known as ‘Pablo Picasso‘, (Spanish pronunciation: [pablo pi'kaso] (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.
