Paul Haesaerts - Visit to Picasso (1949)

Afana. Visit To Picasso from Foxysmile on Vimeo.

"Visit to Picasso ("Bezoek aan Picasso") is a Belgian documentary film from 1949 directed by Belgian filmmaker Paul Haesaerts. In an effort to capture the nature of Picasso's creative process, Paul Haesaerts asked the Spanish painter to apply his magical brushstrokes to large glass plates as Haesaerts filmed from the other side. This actually predates the more famous art film The Mystery of Picasso (1956) by Henri-Georges Clouzot in which Picasso also paints to large transparent canvases as the director films from the other side."
