Painter at Work - Graham Sutherland in France (1962) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1964 , Painters)
Director: Peter Newington

In the austere and dramatic Mariiitne Alps of France, Sutherland draws directly from nature for the themes of his paintings. He is fascinated by nature's opposing forces — the gentleness and violence, the decay and fertility — and his emotional response translates selected natural elements into dramatic compositions.
