Painter and Poet (1960) [Short]

France (MIFF 1962 , Period Art)
Director: Georges Regnier

Baudelaire was primarily an art critic and it was in that capacity that he judged and praised the work of Delacroix. His writings arc used as commentary for the film. The poet and the painter, both having the same intellectual approach, depict a romantic world in which a persistent sadness reflects an underlying fatalism.
