the Chagall footage alone made this worth it for me
9 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since there's no info on IMDb, I thought I would add that this film features rare and unique footage of great modern artists in their studios creating and commenting on their work, with narration and commentary by Orson Welles. Features Chagall, Henry Moore, Dali, De Kooning, Matisse, Picasso, Giacometti, Duchamp and Pollack, and probably some others I'm forgetting. The film also visits great collections housed in The Louvre, The Guggenheim and The Museum of Modern Art to view works by Mondrian, Dubuffet, Kline, Magritte, Warhol and others.

I really enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys learning more about modern art history.
