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:
Romanesque and Gothic
Renaissance and Mannerism
Baroque and Rococo
Neo-classicists and Romantics
Impressionists and Post Impressionists
Cubism and Futurism
The Bauhaus and De Stijl
Dada and Surrealism
Modern and Contemporary Sculptors
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.
