Overview

Painters Painting, 1972, 116 min.

In Painters Painting, de Antonio and cinematographer Ed Emshwiller chronicle the work of 13 painters in New York through interviews and substantial studio observation. As one contemporary reviewer noted, "It's a great big, cheerfully uncritical hug of a movie about a subject [de Antonio] adores: the contemporary New York art scene and the people who make it hustle."
