DVD - 2007
Rate this:
"Illumination, darkness and the mysterious region in between -- three basic components of the painted image. This program describes ways that artists have manipulated light over the centuries, and examines religious, psychological, and aesthetic reasons behind their innovations. Viewers will encounter medieval depictions of biblical narratives and the luminous work of Renaissance and Baroque painters such as Jan van Eyck and Caravaggio. The program also conveys Chardin's mastery of light in still life and the exquisite relationship between sunlight and colour in the paintings of Bonnard and Monet." From container.
