Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous names in art history. His image and art are everywhere - and his art would come to change the definition of what is art but few actually know the remarkable story of his rise to greatness.

Attempting to rectify this, Exhibition on Screen's new documentary, Young Picasso takes an in-depth look at the journey that Picasso’s life took, and traces his path to genius.

Lauded as an award-winning documentary maker, and much-loved cinematic series that explores the biographies of history’s most revered artists, Exhibition on Screen's latest offering, Young Picasso, opened nationally in cinema's across Australia from 1 August 2019.

Directed by Phil Grabsky, this documentary, looks in detail at the elements that drove one small boy from southern Spain to such heights. Three cities play a key role: Málaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso explores each and illustrates why they were so significant.
