National Geographic continues its exploration of exceptional minds with the second chapter of anthology series Genius, starring Antonio Banderas as legendary modern artist Pablo Picasso.

After season one focused on Albert Einstein, starring Geoffrey Rush, season two digs into the legacy of Picasso, another iconic man whose genius was difficult for his loved ones to navigate.

For this spot, which manages to be both stark and colorful, Imaginary Forces reimagined three of the artist’s most passionate muses as color palettes. Each woman presents as a different range of colors, just as all women possess different ranges of emotions.

Genius returns to Nat Geo on Tuesday, April 24 at 9/8c.
