Rodin, the genius, the artist, the romantic, speaks for himself and his art in this film that takes his life full circle from the age of 19 to the time of his death at 77. The brilliance of his revolutionary creations is seen outdoors in natural settings and in museums around the world. To view this film is to experience Rodins life, his spirit, and the moood of his work RODIN was probably the greatest sculptor since Michelangelo. Far ahead of his time, he was both a romantic and a classicist, though his contemporaries often thought of him as a radical and revolutionary. His work celebrates the human form and sensuality. Several of the great Rodin museums and collections have been used to illustrate the best work of this 19th-century artist. The Burghers of Calais, The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell are a few of the masterpieces examined in detail. The camera zooms in and out, gracefully gliding over and around each sculpture to show its three-dimensional quality and capture the play of light on the surface. There are few straight lines or angles shown. Much of Rodins work is fluid and sensual, featuring round edges and undulating surfaces. The sculptures have a life of their own, yet their essence has been frozen in time so that they will always elicit an emotional reaction from the viewer. The dramatic narrative moves well and advances the story of the artist. This would be an excellent purchase for most library collections. The appeal is to adults, but artists and students could also enjoy this title. This well-produced program offers great appeal to those who desire to be awash in the artists celebration of beauty and sensuality. *****5-stars, ABC-CLIO Video Rating Guide for Libraries Of interest, Camille Claudel, Rodin's mistress and prot is also featured in this film.

Tim Marlow with... Gilbert & George Gilbert & George are two people but one artist. Their remarkable partnership is among the most consistent and long lasting in the history of art. In this fascinating and revealing film the self-proclaimed living sculptures join Tim Marlow in an exclusive walk round their "Major Exhibition" at Tate Modern and talk frankly about art and life. They discuss why they dislike religion and the countryside, how they went about photographing their own bodily fluids, why they have always worn suits and how they have felt shunned the art establishment and the media. Since meeting at St. Martin's School of Art in 1967 and resolving to make 'art for all', Gilbert & George have pushed at the boundaries of art and society. The Dirty Words Pictures of the mid '70s shocked many at the time and more recent series have provoked revulsion and accusations of blasphemy, as well as being critically lauded. This film is a fascinating insight into their world and in itself an important document of their life and work. Tim Marlow is a curator, broadcaster, writer and art historian. He is currently Director of Exhibitions at the White Cube gallery in London. From 1991 to 1998 he presented Radio Four's arts programme 'Kaleidoscope', for which he won a Sony Award, and in 1993, founded 'Tate: The Art Magazine'. Tim is the author of various books including monographs of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin and the Austrian expressionist Egon Schiele as well as a survey of great artists published by Faber. He is visiting lecturer at Winchester School of Art and an examiner on the Sculpture MA and former Creative Director of Sculpture at Goodwood.
