More than a century later, John Brown--who helped bring on the bloodiest American upheaval ever--remains one of America's most controversial and misunderstood figures

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This program, made shortly before Robert Motherwell's death in 1991, is an exploration of the Abstract Expressionist movement and a portrait of one of its last survivors. Having come to New York in the early 1940s, Motherwell found himself on the battleground of American art. He and a group of painters set out to change the face of American painting. The film charts this epic battle led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell, who endeavored to make American painting equal to painting elsewhere and, in the process, shifted the center of modern art from Paris to New York ... Interwoven throughout the documentary is film of Motherwell painting in his Greenwich Village studio, creating a collage in Provincetown and preparing for a major retrospective of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in New York."--Back of container
