Picasso and the Circus,#VC141
(7 minutes)
In this short film, a young girl strolls through the exhibition, Picasso: The Saltimbanques. As she gazes at Picasso's pictures of jugglers, bareback riders, harlequins, and clowns, the images before her give way to scenes of a Parisian circus of the kind Picasso attended. Narration is kept to a minimum, enhancing the viewers' experience of the dual realities of the circus performances and of Picasso's art.
