A profile of Pablo Picasso as he has never been shown on television before. An historical and cultural investigation enabling viewers to finally decipher the Picasso ‘mystery’. The painter’s life and work are revealed through discoveries made after his death, when his estate was settled. The true story of the Picasso family is told, before and after the artist’s death, on April the 8th, 1973. And we recount the opening of the Picasso Museum, based on an unprecedented ‘dation’ of his work.
