Modern Art Films

Futurist Gino Severini

A color slide show of the Futurist's work accompanied by a Chopin Nocturne.

Edgar Degas in New Orleans

It is not commonly known that French artist Edgar Degas visited New Orleans in 1872. He came to see his mother's family and was enchanted by his new environment. "Degas in New Orleans" is a dramatization of the pictures he painted under the influence of this seductive and gracious city. The film is narrated by French film director Louis Malle, whose gentle voice and lightly accented English complement the tone of the film perfectly. Produced and directed by Gary Goldman.

German Modernism: Bauhaus

Coined by the architect Walter Gropius, Bauhaus combines the root of the German verb bauen (to build) with haus (house). It is the name given to the art school founded by Gropius under the original title of the Staatliches Bauhaus Weimar. The Bauhaus, which lasted from 1919-1933, has come to represent the distillation of the Modern movement and the fundamentalist design ethic. Part of the Modernism Web site, featuring objects from the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and curator David Ryan, this video was originally produced in 1999.

The Russian Avant-Garde: Vladimir Tatlin

Using computer graphics, archive footage and locations in Moscow, this film illustrates Tatlin's contribution to world architecture and how his tower may have looked in Moscow had it been built after the revolution. The film is an extract from a larger documentary film by Michael Craig of Copernicus Films about Russian Avant-garde architecture from a documentary series of four films.

Alexander Rodchenko

Alexander Rodchenko, the Russian avant-garde artist, abandoned painting in the early 1920s in favor of photography which he believed would better express the new visual and social realities emerging at that time. His experiments in photography and photo-collage influenced artists and photographers throughout the 20th century. This film by Michael Craig of Copernicus Films is a compilation of extracts from a larger documentary film about Rodchenkos's search for new visual frontiers.

A George Grosz Slide Show

George Grosz (1893 - 1959) was a prominent member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group, known especially for his savagely caricatural drawings of Berlin life in the 1920s. This is a slide show of those rebellious paintings.
