Mark Tobey1952

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.7
This short documentary was made while the painter lived in Seattle, Washington, early in the 1950s. It is only the second film made by Robert Gardner and tries to show in cinematic language how this man looked at the world; Mark Tobey himself both performs and is observed. A unique film in the Gardner ouvre, the film not only presents an experimental portrait of Tobey but serves as a window into the American art, avant garde film and poetic movements of this period.

Suggests the processes of abstraction from environment and music to painting.

i'm not a fan of his work but it's interesting & well done_a nice slice of the 1950s

I enjoyed seeing the old footage but didn't care much for his dialogue

I gave up after about 15 min, maybe I should have continued but life's too short
