To give you perspective of what Les Demoiselles d’Avignon Video (DVD) is all about, let us go back to history. In 1907, the women in Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, intimidating at those times, were a sharp contrast to all previous Western traditions in that they didn’t fear showing their female nude.
Tells the story of depicting female nude in paintings. In the video, the painting’s deliberate lack of narrative, doing away with three-dimensionality, and distorted, sharp-edged nude forms are showcased and analyzed. Les Demoiselles d’Avignon Video (DVD) also showcases the influences of Ingres, El Greco, Cezanne, a stolen Iberian stone sculpture, African tribal masks and one very substantial postcard, which is a BBCW Production.
