Painters Painting

In college, my friends and I became a little obsessed with Emile de Antonio's 1972 documentary Painters Painting.  Though the film may appeal strictly to the art geeks among us, it's still worth a watch.

Painters Painting thoroughly delves into the New York art scene between 1940 and 1970.  Through conversation with some of the greatest artists of the 20th Century, we are let behind the curtain to see what the wizards have really been up to.

I recently watched the film again, and was surprised to find even more wisdom and insight this time around.  So if you're interested in creative process, 20th Century Art, painting, or all of the above check this gem out.
