Brushstrokes [electronic resource]: Painter's Touch

Europe Images International
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Should brushstrokes be allowed to show-or even be shown off, like a signature-or should they be carefully effaced whenever possible, leaving the surface of a painting smooth? This program looks at both the mechanical side of the question-the influence of pigments and brush types on the traces of a brush's passage-as well as the long-running doctrinal tension between exponents of visible and hidden brushstrokes.
