Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop.
Jan 2009. SimmonsArt, DVD
In this beautifully shot 13-part series, landscape painter and art historian David Dunlop journeys to various European and American locations where some of the world's most influential artists lived or visited. In the first title, Van Gogh's Asylum at St. Remy, France, Dunlop walks the grounds of the asylum of St. Paul de Mausole where the troubled artist did much of his best work. Setting up his easel as he views the surrounding countryside, Dunlop describes van Gogh's life and artistic techniques as he applies the acclaimed artist's characteristic heavy brushstrokes and rich color palate to create a scene that echoes van
Gogh's style. As he paints, Dunlop's running commentary is filled with fascinating tidbits about the artist's personal struggles. Meanwhile, adult students, who accompanied Dunlop on the trip, are creating their own paintings. Dunlop tactfully adds color and texture to enhance one student's work. In the next title, Monet's Waterlillies at Giverny, France, Dunlop talks about the origins of Impressionism as he tours Monet's home. He works at his easel in front of the well-known pond and describes the beginnings of Impressionism. The instructor again critiques the work of a student and enthusiastically shares Monet's techniques and philosophy of painting. Using a similar format, Dunlop and company travel
across France and back to America to introduce other influential artists, including Cezanne, Renoir, Inness, Kensett, Turner, and Church. This stunning series holds wide appeal for armchair travelers, budding artists, and art students. Each 27-minute program can be purchased separately for $29.95. Candace Smith
