Emile de Antonio's Painters Painting
A CD-ROM by Ron Mann, edited by Douglas Kellner
Painters Painting is a vibrant collective portrait of the legendary figures who powered the tumultuous post-war New York art scene. Immediate and irreverent, the film has the feeling of an intimate conversation. De Antonio shows artists (and their critics and patrons) gossiping, drinking, and talking about life and art, and in the process illuminates the genesis of Abstract Expressionism. Footage of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition New York Painting and Sculpture 1940-1970 supplements the film. An invaluable resource for anyone interested in contemporary art, Painters Painting brilliantly captures a turning point in American art and culture.
