Excellent teaching aid

By H.M.B.

from Ellenton, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master of American Sculpture DVD:

I feel this DVD would be good for Art History Survey students. It is brief yet covers a good part of the artist life. It explains his most important works and shows a number of works that
I have not seen before.

a thoroughly mediocre documentary

By arthistorian

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master of American Sculpture DVD:

far too selective
oriented to his (uninteresting) private life
no sense of the context for any work
far too little exploration of the patronage
only the extant works which photograph well are included

Award Winning Video

By Valkyr

from Midwest City, OK

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master of American Sculpture DVD:

The first-rate videography of this DVD brings each sculpture seemingly within hands reach, enabling the viewer to see the rich detail of each work. Traveling to see these works of Saint-Gaudens in person - I have seen two - is well worth the time and treasure expended, and brings an even greater appreciation of the artist, and of the quality of the DVD. This is an award winning work, and I hope it will be recognized as such. Good Job, PBS!
