Mark Tobey - Artist

USA, 1951 (MIFF 1955, The Creative Impulse)

Director: Robert G. Gardner

An experiment toward the interpretation of a personal vision. After a fantasy sequence of all sorts of persons making varied comments about Tobey's abstract paintings in a gallery, the film follows Tobey out of his Seattle home and the audience sees the world through his eyes.
