Summary "In this program, artists John Hoyland and Sir Anthony Caro; Charlotte Mullins, of the Irish Independent on Sunday; and others examine the history of Abstract Art. After a capsule summary of Impressionism and Cubism, the program tracks the full flowering of Abstract Art, stretching into Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism. Special attention is given to Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jason Martin, and Fiona Rae. Footage of artists at work along with a wide selection of paintings and sculpture round out this concise and informative overview."
