Roland Collection of Videos & Films on Art

Roland Collection of Videos & Films on Art

We ran across this website by chance.

The Roland Collection of Videos & Films on Art is a tremendous “pay to buy” collection of art films and art videos – all titles are available for sale – but the site also offers free viewing of 450 complete films on-line. Available by art period are:

Early Cultures

First Civilisations


Pre-Columbian America

Romanesque and Gothic

Renaissance and Mannerism

Northern Renaissance


Baroque and Rococo

Neo-classicists and Romantics

The Victorians

Impressionists and Post Impressionists

Art Nouveau


Cubism and Futurism

Into Abstraction

The Bauhaus and De Stijl

Dada and Surrealism

Modern Masters

Modern and Contemporary Sculptors

Contemporary Painters

New Directions – New Dimensions

Modern Architecture and Design

Unfortunately, surely in order to urge the viewer to buy the original quality video or film, online quality is only top at “100%” – a very small screen size (though the films and videos are also viewable at e.g. 300% or larger screen size). Pull the right lower edge of the RealPlayer display to play with size.

Still, it is terrific stuff, e.g. take a look at Tassili N’Ajjer – Prehistoric Rock Paintings of the Sahara.
