An abundance of Stock Schlock

By mcblur

Comments about PBS The Great Artists: The Post-Impressionists 6PK DVD:

Having previously purchased this company's "The Impressionists", I was already aware of the preponderance of "Stock" footage that dominates their productions. If you turn off the sound, you realize that the majority of the footage is repeated close-ups of footage of brushstrokes on paintings, or dabbling about on a palette, as opposed to actual footage of masterpieces. Much of the footage of the actual paintings are "pan and scan" images.
With the volume up, it is painfully evident that, rather than spending the time filming random brushstrokes, they should have invested a little more time in reading the books of some Established Art Historians. A careful reading of John Rewald, accompanied with the artist's actual letters might have vastly improved the narrative. Knowing this, I went ahead and ordered "The Post-Impressionists" . . .as background radiation, it is better than most of what is on television, however, KULTUR does not equal CULTURE.

If you are into art history, and especially the lives of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, then this set should be on your shelf. Terrific! And well worth the price.
