This is from the final episode of State of the Art, a series of documentaries about the visual arts in the 1980s
A piece done on Rothko that I really enjoy. The music is perfectly fit, performed by Daniel Giorgetti
(This post is also on the Veritas blog.)
I just came across this today on the Blue Tower Arts Foundation blog, I am surprised I missed the episode. Julian is an Artist that I admire not only for his painting but for his films. He is one of my major artistic influences. If you have seen Basquiat, Before Night Falls or Diving Bell and the Butterfly and missed Schnabel the painter, then you need to do some research and view his works.
