Product Description

Product Description

This film offers an exclusive invitation into the secret world of Frank Auerbach.

From the Back Cover

The legendary painter rarely leaves his studio: he works 365 days a year, from sun-up to sun-down in a furious race against time. There is not a minute to waste.

His main links with the outside world are the models who’ve sat for him for between ten and forty-two years. They are from diverse backgrounds: acting, academia, filmmaking and business. They talk with insight about being painted and about the man behind the canvas.

Auerbach is filmed in his studio, sketching in the National Gallery and around Camden town, talking about his sitters, his routine, his compulsions, strange rituals, his ambitions and his heroes.

For anyone who loves the work of Auerbach, this film gives great insight into how the creative process works for Frank Auerbach. Great footage of him out and about in his local habitat of Mornington Crescent. Really interesting and beautifully made.

An interesting film with interviews of the models who sit for the artist. Some revealling comments from the artist about his work too. I found it really helped me to understand Auerbach's work and love it even more. 5 stars.

The service for this item was fast and efficient. The DVD was excellent, and the filming of Frank Auerbach painting was most informative. The DVD was even more entertaing than the description by the vendor.

This is an engaging profile and has a real personal feel. I only wish it were twice as long.

I really enjoy the painter's old friends who have posed for him through the years talking about him and the experience.
