Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Montparnasse Revisited: The Man Behind Picasso - Daniel Henry Kahnweiler profiles the single man who made the Cubists important. A German-born French art dealer, Kahnweiler is best-known for his early espousal of Cubism and his long, intimate association with Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. After training for a career in finance, Kahnweiler instead chose art and relocated to Paris, where he launched a small gallery. He became interested in and supportive of the work of several young artists and soon exclusively represented Picasso, Georges Braque, and Juan Gris. The program features interview footage with Kahnweiler himself, who died in Paris in 1979.
