One way of seeing it is on Youtube

A four episode documentary series on art.  The final episode, which compares oil painting to photography, is especially interesting.

  5. Watching all four parts of these right now, should change my mind on a few things and create some arguments.

  10. I find your blog fun to read and very addicting, so I've decided to Follow you.

    I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)

  12. Really neat. I've been trying to educate myself more on art lately after seeing Exit Through the Gift Shop. Good stuff.
