Great movie
Verified purchase
Someone who knew Picasso well. He talked about both the art and Picasso's relationships. Liked it so much that I watched it twice.

A very general discussion of Picasso
Verified purchase
I like this video, but people who already know something about Picasso will not find much new information. You can find more detailed discussions of Picasso hosted by John Richardson and other people on YouTube. This video covers most of Picasso's life, not just the last part where Richardson personally knew Picasso. The result is a broad, very general review of Picasso's various phases.
