The Majesty of Wood (1955) [Short]

Belgium (MIFF 1958 , Pigment and Chisel)

The unifying theme of this film is the beauty of wood. A succession of examples from Belgian churches and museums traces the sequences of styles from the hieratic Romanesque through the gradually increasing naturalism of Gothic art. The film concludes with details of Renaissance and high baroque carving.
