Desperately seeking Picasso

Discussion started on

I've reached a bit of a stumbling block with my current WI P (YA).  My book is loosely based on the works of some of the world's greatest artists, and I am looking for honest, accurate information regarding Pablo Picasso...in particular, info that deals with Picasso's misogynistic ways.  I am finding bits and blurbs while surfing, but I'm hoping that someone might be able to point me to something specific?  I'd like to watch the DVD "Surviving Picasso" starring Anthony Hopkins too, but our little village hasn't got that particular flick in the vid store.  And our art dept at the school is horrifyingly sparse! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Could you sign up for something like Netflix or Blockbuster Online where they mail you the DVDs? You might have more of a selection that way and sometimes they have a free trial period. I know the video store near me charges something like $5 for one rental and Netflix is around $10 a month for unlimited movies (I think it varies based on the plan you chose). If you think you could watch a whole bunch of movies in a month, you could cancel after the free trial period and the first month. It might be worth it cost-wise.

You can browse what they have before you do it: http://www.netflix.com/Search?v1=Picasso

Wasn't Surviving Picasso based on a book by Arianna Huffington? (Ah, the stuff I store in my brain.)

here it is:
