Pablo Picasso – a master at work

In 1955, Henri-Georges Clouzot filmed the famous documentary “The Mystery of Picasso.” This is a video showing Pablo Picasso as he paints. The result is a time-lapse photography documenting how Picasso created his artworks. What’s amazing is that he actually alters the canvas as he progresses, basically taking a relatively normal painting to begin with and turning it into a cubist masterpiece.
