From Calder to Comic Books: A World of Creative Arts

Bridgeman Footage is now home to an all-encompassing series of programmes on the creative arts. 

 

Artists and their work

The Creative Arts Television collection profiles some of the most intriguing artists from the 20th and 21st centuries, including Max Ernst, Aubrey Beardsley, Pablo Picasso and Hans Richter. Full-length documentaries on Andre Kertesz and Edward Steichen theorise the art of photography, while intimate interviews with Alfred Hitchcock and John Cage pick the brains behind their landmark creations in cinema and music. Henry Moore takes us on a tour of his sculpture garden, while Alexander Calder brings his Miniature Circus to life before an audience.
