Art and Artists on Film
February 16 @ 7:00 pm
Our popular film series led by Dr. William Costanzo, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of English & Film, returns with another fascinating 2-part series, this time focusing on art and artists on film. Cinema is an art form that captures the world in motion. The art of painting arrests that movement, presenting the world at a moment in time. This presentation explores how movies interact with masterworks of painting and the artists who create them. Using film clips from recent films, we will focus on selected painters representing a range of artistic styles, and national traditions, including Vincent Van Gogh, J. M. W. Turner, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Johannes Vermeer, the self-taught French artist Séraphine, and the Korean brush-stroke painter known as Owon. Please join us for more lively, enlightening film discussion.
