The Mystery of Picasso
(Suitable for high school through adult, 75 min)
An exploration of the mind and motivations of Picasso, as he creates works live, in this exposé of a master at work. One of the greatest art documentaries ever made captures the exhilarating moment and mystery of creativity of the 20th century's greatest artist Pablo Picasso. French film director Georges Clouzot (Diabolique, Wages of Fear) persuaded his friend Picasso to perform his drawing and painting on glass while filmed from other side. The master creates 20 mesmerizing works. Casual comments between the two prove fascinating. In French with easy-to-read English subtitles.
This interview airs beginning February 16.
During an exhibit of his work in the duPont Gallery at the University of Mary Washington, Joe DiBella talked about art, his love of teaching, and the 25 years reflected in the exhibition.
