Moving Pictures

Anne Hollander

ISBN 9780674588288

Publication date: 03/01/1991

Anne Hollander begins with the great masters of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries—Van Eyck, Durer, Bruegel—and progresses through the history of European art to the advent of film in the modern era. She explores the interconnectedness of painting, prints, and film as modes of art that in comparable ways depict moments in the narrative flow of human life. Moving Pictures offers a new way of assessing the artistic, emotional, and psychological power of paintings and pictures—and of understanding our own deepest responses to them.
