Each episode of Portrait of an Artist offers an intimate peek at the life and work of an important figure in the world of art. Not just a dry discussion of the major works, this video is an exploration of the environment that produced the artist and influenced his or her work. From interviews with family and friends, to short trips to the artist's favorite haunts, no stone is left unturned. In this particular episode, viewers explore the life and work of Roy Lichtenstein, one of the prominent figures of the pop movement. Focusing on his 1993 career retrospective at the Guggenheim, this video explores the work of the man who so effectively combined four-color comic-book art with the sensibility of Seurat. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
A documentary featuring the founder of pop art. Andy Warhol is represented through his work and through interviews. ~ John Voorhees, Rovi
Pop Art icon Claes Oldenburg achieved fame in the 1960's for his large scale sculptures of food and other ordinary household items. He went on to continually challenge the public's perception of the boundary between artistic objects and pedestrian ones -- between art and life -- through numerous soft sculptures, ambitious public monuments and performances, and a wealth of fantastically original drawings. This irreverent documentary and retrospective of his work (including collaborations with his wife, Coosje van Bruggen) features an inside look at the artist's studio, the construction of his Giant Houseball in Petaluma, California, and interviews with leading dealers, critics, and artists such as Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein. ~ Sarah Welsh, Rovi
