Watch Picasso Create Entire Paintings in Magnificent Time-Lapse Film (1956)

Watch Picasso Create Entire Paintings in Magnificent Time-Lapse Film (1956) | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

How did Pablo Picasso do it? Art historians have spent much time and many words answering that question, but in the video above, you can watch the painter in the act of creation — or, rather, you can watch a series of his paintings as they come into being, evolving from spare but evocative collections of marker strokes into complete images, alive with color. We see Picasso’s visual ideas emerge, and then we see him refine and revise them, sometimes toward a surprising result. All of this happens in under two minutes, since filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot shot the artist working with time-lapse photography, compressing each creative process into mere seconds.

video: Garry Winogrand in action | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Garry Winnogrand’s contribution to street photography (he hates the term) is immeasurable and paramount. At the time of his death, he had 2,500 rolls of film undeveloped and 6,5000 developed but not yet proofed. Simply put, he was prolific with an undeniably unique vision. He also seems like he would be an entertaining person to have drinks with. Shot in the ‘70s, this video follows Winnogrand around Venice Beach as he takes photos and discuses his approach to photography.

VIDEO: The “Phantasmatical: Self Portraits” of Anne Harris

VIDEO: The “Phantasmatical: Self Portraits” of Anne Harris | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The unusual and fantastical silhouettes in Anne Harris’ oil paintings stem from a personal place. In “Phantasmatical: Self-Portraits” at New York's Alexandre Gallery, Harris depicts the emotional and physical facets of women at middle age in a series of new paintings. Both liberating and vulnerable, these nude portraits appear to emerge from thin air and teeter in a state of obscurity and visibility, emphasizing the notion of a maturing woman “being exposed but not looked at.” Harris shared with BLOUIN ARTINFO her personal experiences that led to the visceral self-portraits.
