Eames: The Architect & The Painter [DVD]
Eames: The Architect & The Painter [DVD]
Dvd ~ Charles Eames
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Enthusiasm, talent and encouragement - an unstoppable combination., 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating account of a dazzling partnership and its tremendous influence on many aspects of modern design.
It illustrates the possibilities that can be achieved when a firm with dynamic leadership encourages and doesn't inhibit talented people who work in an exciting environment.

It also illustrates the difficulties of sustaining that dynamism as leaders age and the challenges of sharing credit and renown.

It is a splendid reminder of an era of optimism and confidence. I am very pleased to own this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding production with disappointing quality of recording., 30 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent series, thoroughly informative, well researched, authoritative and comprehensive, containing much material that one seldom finds elsewhere. Unfortunately, the DVD seems to have been poorly copied (and recopied many times?) from the original 1989 video production and this detracts considerably from the pleasure of viewing it. Nonetheless, I am pleased to own it and will no doubt watch it again from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Francesco comes up trumps again., 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It certainly seemed a very ambitious project to tour this fascinating country within the time available on two DVDs.
I was curious to see whether and if so, how Francesco would manage it. After enjoying his account of Venice and Venetian history, I was pretty confident that the result would be enjoyable. I was certainly not disappointed.

In fact, it turned out to be hugely enjoyable, largely because of Francesco"s engaging personality and his very idiosyncratic selection of routes and venues. He introduced us to novel aspects of well-known places and to interesting and delightful people. As I had expected, it turned out to be something of a whirlwind tour but nonetheless thoroughly worthwhile. I found the second disc more enjoyable than the first, but both of them amply satisfactory. It was an unexpected pleasure to have Maggie Smith join us, and a bonus to visit Sicily as well.

I'm looking forward to the pleasure of Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage.
