Picasso and Sima, Antibes 1946
Visual Arts • 58m
Directed by Christian Tran • Documentary • 2009 • 58 minutes
In June 1946, the sculptor and photographer Michel Sima met with Pablo Picasso in Antibes. At Picasso's request, day after day Sima photographed Picasso's works-in-progress in the workshop he found for him at Grimaldi Palace.
The artists' work and friendship eventually resulted in the creation of the Picasso Museum. This unique showcase in Antibes has recently been renovated and the works of art returned to their proper home, providing visitors the opportunity to step into a moment in art history.
