Pablo Picasso : the legacy of a genius by Robert Rosenblum( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the breadth of the artist's achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso's career. Robert Rosenblum, an art historian and a noted authority on Picasso, introduces us to these key works. Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art. Critic Clement Greenberg and Picasso's biographer Roland Penrose present their views on many important issues in Picasso's career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have had to contend with the scope of Picasso's vision. Among others, Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal, and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso's oeuvre has affected their own artistic sensibilities. Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius is an assessment of the 20th century's best known artist and his vast achievements

INTIMATTA is a cinematographic object, typical from MATTA's sphere, belonging to his world and nothing else, open to whatever you want to project in it. It is not a documentary but more an artist film about Roberto Matta, based on video recordings made by his son Ramuntcho Matta, director of this project, and about interviews to contemporaries who knew Matta very well. When he was 80, Matta felt the need to transmit the keys of his career and thus created an exchanging space between him and his youngest son, Ramuntcho, who was young enough to be his grandson. An even closer relationship was built, since Matta had lost two of his children: Batan, who committed suicide in 1975 and his twin brother, Gordon Matta-Clark, who died of cancer in 1978. This way, Ramuntcho started to record from the eighties each encounter with his father, focused on how to transmit the tools for you to become your own father. Transmission was always the centre of Matta's philosophy. This is what allowed him to develop very privileged relationships with, among others, Garcia Lorca, Le Corbusier, Victor Brauner, Salvador Dali, Andre Breton, Marcel Duchamp ... in order to be able to transmit later on these knowledge, a real principle of life and responsibility to Matta: instead of hiding the secrets of creation, he opens his studio to other artists, creating a real 'inspiring' breeze to Jackson Pollock, Willhem de Kooning, Fahlstrom, Jorn. Thanks to dozens of tapes with Roberto Matta painting, talking, walking and even sleeping; recorded between 1986 and 2000, through his working notebooks, his letters, his postcards and the gifts he sent to family and friends, INTIMATTA shows us a way of thinking. With this unpublished material as a starting point, INITIMATTA immerses us into the artist's creative and intimate world, stating some universal questions about transmission, fatherhood, and how to share intimacy
