De Renoir a Picasso by Haesaerts, Paul
This black and white film by Paul Haesaerts depicts three main divisions in the world of art, known as sensualism, intellectualism and emotionalism. Haesaerts impressively combines the work of three famous French artists with these themes. Paintings of Renoir, Seurat and Picasso are carefully displayed and analyzed. By linking the painter Renoir to the Body, Seurat to the Mind and Picasso to Emotion, the film makes the immemorial divisions come to life once more.
