Genius: Picasso is the second season of National Geographic's first fully-scripted drama series. Diving into the life and loves of the brilliant Spanish artist Pablo Picasso (Antonio Banderas), this season showcases Picasso's significant and wide-ranging contribution to modern art. Exploring the Spanish expatriate's devotion to his craft, the series also reveals Picasso's relationships with other well-known personalities of the time, including Coco Chanel, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall and Jean Cocteau. From the younger Picasso (Alex Rich) who rejects academic study and joins a circle of young, struggling bohemian artists and writers in early 20th century Spain and France, to the artist's tumultuous marriages, passionate affairs and ever-shifting political and personal alliances, Genius: Picasso uncovers what sparked Picasso's creative drive and pushed his artistic boundaries leading to his worldwide renown as a genius.
