Art from A to …W

What do The Rape of Europa and The Shock of the New have in common? They are both documentaries about art. While The Rape of Europa deals with the Nazis efforts to steal or destroy great European art (the real-life “Monuments Men”), The Shock of the New (BBC production) traces the history of 20th Century art and includes rare interviews with key artists.

These are only a couple of the new art DVDs that we recently added to our collection.

Here’s a sampling of some of the other titles:

Against the Odds: the Artists of the Harlem Renaissance illustrates the creative atmosphere of Harlem in the 20s and 30s.

Art from the Streets investigates an art program for the homeless.

Exploring the Da Vinci Code takes you on a tour of the French town steeped in Knights Templar and Holy Grail mythology.

Hidden Art of Islam describes an art tradition based on calligraphy and geometric patterns.

How Art Made the World takes you on a journey exploring the breadth of human creativity.

And since the title of this blog ends with ‘W’ I thought I’d mention Andy Warhol a Documentary featuring the complete range of Warhol’s works.

Here’s a more complete list of our latest art DVDs:
