Modern Masters Episode 3 of 4: Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso

Modern Masters Episode 3 of 4

The third in a four-part series exploring the life and works of the 20th century’s most important artists: Matisse; Picasso; Dali and Warhol.

The life of Pablo Picasso is an exciting story of rebellion, riches, women and great art. In this episode of a four-part series dedicated to Modern Art, journalist Alastair Sooke travels through France, Spain and the US to see some of the artist’s great works and recount tales from his life story.

Talking to architects, fashion experts and artists, he investigates how Picasso’s influence, particularly that of his Cubist work, continues to pervade modern life today, in the shape of buildings, interior design, clothes and of course contemporary art. Tracking down former Picasso model Sylvette David to her current home in Britain, he also hears how Picasso’s images of her inspired the look of screen siren Brigitte Bardot.
