»Der Tag des Malers« [The Day of the Painter]
by Werner Nekes, Germany 1997, 84 min
A stroll through the picture world of the painter whose view is toward the female nude. Associations with works by artists such as Dürer, Matisse, Seurat, to the »Origins of the World« of Courbet and »L’étant donnés« of Duchamp are evoked, intentionally. »Der Tag des Malers« allows the artistic possibilities of expression found in painting, video and computer pictures to melt into the medium of film. The unusual portrayal makes the film into an adventure film for the eye.
