Jackson Pollock by Kim Evans( Visual )

3 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1956, Time Magazine mockingly described one of America's most important 20th century artists as "Jack the Dripper". It did so because Jackson Pollock stood for something new: with his innovative technique of "dripping" and "pouring" paint, he originated Action painting, creating radical, subjective works which revolutionised the world of art. However, Pollock also typified the image of drunken artist in search of meaning and he became something of a legend as a result of his premature death. In this documentary, Kim Evans portrays the myth of Pollock, an artist whose abstract painting was celebrated by the media as the quintessential American art form

Fanfare for America : the composer Aaron Copland( Visual )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impressed with how European music could have a "German sound", a "French sound", and so on, Aaron Copland returned from his years in Paris to New York City, intent on capturing the essence of the "American sound." This documentary presents an artful blending of the life and music of one of America's great modern composers. The many milestones in Copland's long career are discussed by his biographer, Howard Pollock, while stirring images of Copland's native city are set to selections of his music as performed by the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. FRSO conductor Hugh Wolff provides astute commentary. Many interviews with Copland are included, along with a historic recording of "Clarinet Concerto" with Benny Goodman playing and Copland conducting"--Container
