Pablo Ruiz Picasso and the Movie "Surviving Picasso"

Updated on December 21, 2011

Surviving Picasso Trailer

I am not a art critic or dealer, nor do I have a art degree, but I do love art and have a healthy respect for artist. I can only imagine what it would be like to have the talent and the compulsion to create all the time. Yes, I call it a compulsion because I have heard that true genius has no choice. Musicians have to make music, composers have to compose, painters have to paint, mathimaticians have to calculate.

I have always been fascinated by the work of Picasso. All of his work that I have seen creates interest. For some reason when I see a work of art that interest me it always leads me back to the artist. I wonder what was in the persons mind while painting. What they felt. Who they are as a person, what are their likes and dislikes. I have read quite a bit about Picasso, but the movie really put who he was in a whole new perspective. Yes, he was a genius, yes, he was beautiful, yes, he was ugly, yes, he was a human being with many flaws. Out of all of his paintings that I looked at not once did I ask the question, "wonder how many flaws this man had as a human being" No, we never see the true person behind the work. That is a talent in itself. We only see what they want us to see.

The movie "Surviving Picasso" shows you who Pablo Picasso really was as a person. How he lived his life and how he related to other people. I loved the movie. If you like art, and artistic people or if your curious about genius and how they work. This is a movie that is definitely worth watching.


Picasso's Major Accomplishment

Pablo Picasso was the most famous artist of the 20th century. No other painter or sculpter was as famous as he was during his lifetime. He was best known for co-founding the Cubist movement.

Picasso's Womanizing

The women in Picasso's life suffered greatly and it seems that they were never able to overcome the impact he had on their life. That is, except for one. Francoise Gilot, who became a successful artist in her own right.
