This is a portrait of the artist Emile Norman, who worked with a passion for life, art, nature and freedom that inspired him through seven decades of a changing art scene and turbulent times for a gay man in America. The film chronicles his early days in the San Gabriel Valley, his success in New York City, and the freedom he found in Big Sur, where he and his partner of 30 years created a haven for artists that is still growing today.

Unique

Comments about PBS Emile Norman: By His Own Design DVD:

I ordered this for a friend who said I should see it, he wants to view it again after watching it aired on TV. I had no idea that Emile Norman was so innovative. His art is truly unique and I would love to see his work in person, this is probably the next best thing. I want to watch it again also!

An outstanding true story!

Comments about PBS Emile Norman: By His Own Design DVD:

The beauty of this artists work is literally breathtaking. I had no knowledge of the man prior to seeing the broadcast. Seeing that presentation certainly motivated me to purchase the DVD. The story of his relationship with his 'significant other' also made a positive impression of what life can be like for a committed couple.

Wonderful production!!

Comments about PBS Emile Norman: By His Own Design DVD:

I found Emile Norman's story fascinating. But besides the amazing accomplishments and drive of this special man, part of what came to me is how often our very most gifted people are gay. And if that is so, how can a God who values beauty enough to have created it all around us, not value these people--perhaps even more than those of us who have not had to endure their struggles. I would love to have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and tell him how wonderful I think he and his art are.

Fantastic

Comments about PBS Emile Norman: By His Own Design DVD:

Unfortunate that the story of this extraordinary and influential man is not a mandatory subject of study in schools!! Brilliantly put together, awe-inspiring... a must watch.
