Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time - and right up until his death in 1973, he was the most prolific of artists. 

Many films have dealt with Picasso's later years - the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends.  But where did this all begin?  What made Picasso in the first place?  Too long ignored, it's time to look at the early years of Picasso, his upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements.

Three cities play a key role in Picasso's early time period: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris.  Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on the artist, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. 

In looking carefully at two key early periods - the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period - this cinematic production explains how young Picasso acquired his craft.  Taking the viewer to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art - Les Demoiselles d'Avignon - Young Picasso shows how the artist, at the age of only 25, shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably.

Working closely with all three Picasso museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris, this production sheds light on how Picasso rose to such great heights!

The production runs approximately one hour, 30 minutes.
