SPANISH painter, sculptor and printmaker Pablo Picasso is one of the world’s most beloved and well-known artists.

Now Exhibition on Screen give us a unique insight into the artist’s early years with Young Picasso, which is to be broadcast at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Monday, February 18 (6.45pm).

Right up until his death in 1973, Picasso was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years - the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends.

But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place? Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements.

Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years.

"Fascinating and refreshing documentary with such intellectual rigour. On the huge canvas of a cinema screen, this is an unforgettable experience," writes the Daily Express.

"Engrossing detail and elegance, charged with charm and finesse," says The Guardian, while Film News says: "An illuminating documentary for the art-curious and a legacy film for Picasso enthusiasts."

Tickets for this Exhibition On Screen event at Mwldan are £10 (£9) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online at or via the Mwldan app.
