1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Excuse for a MoMA Collection Video December 30, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I have been painting for close to 40 years, have had some success showing in NY, taught art at two universities, authored a book on a major artist's print work, no need or intention to go on and on with my story - but the point is I honor and support the great museums of NY and MoMA has one of the most important bodies of work anywhere. This bad video mocks us. The selections chosen is inadequate, the music is mind numbing and has no relationship with anything contained in this video. And most importantly nearly all of the work has been cropped! The paintings are missing tops, sides, bottoms - how in the world could the video maker AND MoMA permit this? This is insane. For example, Jasper John's great painting of the map of the U.S. is cut off at North Carolina to the south, equally unbelievable cuts are made to the north, east and west. Each artist's very idea of what their work should look like has been corrupted by DVD maker Screen Dreams who puts their copy write symbol on all their text pages. Do NOT purchase this video. You will not be getting what you think it promises to be. CD ROMs of the past were superior to this by far. There is no order to the presentation of material, no logic to the shuffling of content, what is not and who is not represented on this disk is absolutely unfathomable. Can you believe there are no works from Picasso or Warhol? Please realize that a blu ray disk is capable of storing an amazingly high amount of material, sadly it is so under used for this short presentation. What a sham, and what a shame to all involved in the making and the distributing of this disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars 50 Master Paintings from MoMA November 15, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"MoMA 50 Masterworks From The Collection" blu-ray displays images of 50 paintings from The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Various styles are represented and many paintings have vivid and bright colors. Paintings may be bold, sublime, curious, strange, and/or exotic. The video includes some well-known paintings, including Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night" which is depicted on the front cover of the blu-ray.

Each image of a painting is displayed for about 28 seconds before moving on to the next image. The total time is 25 minutes. Then, the blu-ray goes on in a continuous loop of the paintings again.

Pleasant music is played on the sole audio option, DTS-HD Master.

There are three video options. One may play the images with no credits or with credits which include the name of the artist and other brief biographical information, as well as a very brief description, quote, and/or commentary. The third option is to create your own playlist of your favorite paintings.

Monet. Water Lillies
