Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism and Nonobjective Art and Surrealism.

FAUVISM, EXPRESSIONISM, CUBISM AND NONOBJECTIVE ART and SURREALISM. Art appreciation filmstrips, slides and videos. Crystal Productions, 1812 Johns Drive, P.O. Box 2159, Glenview, IL 60025.

Crystal Productions has announced the release of four new programs of art appreciation. They are available in three formats--as filmstrips, slide sets or still-frame format VHS videotapes. The four filmstrips, cassettes and a teacher's guide are $125.00 per set; the four slide programs with cassettes and a teacher's guide arc $245.00 per set; and the complete video program is available for $115.00 or $59.95 for a two-part tape--Fauvism and Expressionism or Cubism and Nonobjective Art and Surrealism.

Fauvism explores early modern art through the vibrant colors, bold distortion and dynamic brushstrokes of Matisse, Rouault, Derain, Vlaminck and others.

The program featuring Expressionism looks at its development during the early twentieth century in Germany and its influence on other styles and movements in other countries. The paintings of Nolde, Munch, Kokoschka, Beckmann and other Expressionists are featured in this presentation.

Cubism and Nonobjective Art presents Cubism as an outgrowth of Cezanne's structural style beginning with paintings by Braque and Picasso, and it then points out influences of such artists as Gris, Duchamp and Leger. Nonobjective art is also explored through the works of Kandinsky in this program.

Surrealism is revealed as a hidden world of the unconscious as transferred to the world of art. This is presented through the works of artists such as Dali, Magritte, Arp, Ernst, Miro and others.

The programs are very well documented and the production quality in all formats is excellent. They are designed to address students at many levels of instruction--from upper elementary through higher education. Highly recommended.
