One Hundred Years of Modern Art, Part Three

This film gives a rudimentary 'exposure' to a broad range of art for young audiences; it offers a survey of the painting, sculpture and architecture of the period 1930-70. A filming technique was evolved whereby brief instalments of information are followed by long sections without narration, designed to capture the spirit of each style that has been discussed. Film sequences include: Picasso, Sutherland, Bacon, Matisse, Abstract Expressionism, Action Painting, Pollock, Rothko, Figurative Painting, Pop Art, Mixed Media, Kinetic Art, Mobiles, Calder, Illusion, Maillol, Brancusi, Giacometti, González, Moore, Hepworth, Futurism, Dada, Constructivism, Gabo, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto.
