This is the most fun I've ever had watching paint dry. This is a really intimate glimpse into the artistic process of one of the greatest living painters today. Its a fantastic resource to share with students.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Watching paint dry?" Dec 26 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Who knew that watching paint dry on a canvass could be such an engaging activity? To watch such a skilled artist at work is one of the most thrilling things an artist could bare witness to. Such an engaging documentary about the artist's history, his methods of working, his studio and his current show was amazing. Not since "What Remains:, Sally Mann" have I been this drawn into an artist documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Richter Nov. 18 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had seen the movie in a theater but, as an artist, I wanted to have the opportunity to view it more than once. I love it although I think it has more impact on the large screen. Also I think they took some small parts off the DVD. It is amazing to see how he creates a painting. For an artist it is really inspiring.

4.0 out of 5 stars looking at the creative process, with limitations Sept. 30 2012
By irwin gershow - Published on Amazon.com

Gerhard Richter Painting
this dvd is an attempt to explore the inner workings of the creative process of a great contemporary artist. what is highlighted in the inexpressible process of the artist's thinking and feeling as he works on his paintings until the "moment" of achievement is met. richter admits to not knowing from the get go what he is intending to achieve. his large size squeegees create transformations of the initial hand made painting, and the mechanical process offers him the opportunity for the painting to have a life of it's own. in watching this, the viewer is fascinated, puzzled, bored, and transfixed looking at an artist, but not quite seeing into his inner psyche. richter is often both self deprecating and humorous about the "unknowable" in mulling over the creative process. the film tends to be rather slow moving and at times lumbering, but it is none-the-less, a wonderful inside view of a great artist at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars He is one of the best abstract painters. Feb. 23 2013
By C. Eckdall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great DVD. Painting with a giant squeegie has been obvious to most artists but surprising to many who have never silk screened.
I love his enormous range and this is just aspect of his long long career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Paint Nov. 26 2012
By Michael Halliday - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An intimate visit with the artist in his studio. It was a joy to watch him engaged in his creative process, and to see his paintings unfold. He's very adept with both brush and squeegee. It was delicious to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Forewarned, Uncle Rudy's In The Closet. March 9 2013
By John Eden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very interesting video documentary of the artist at work in his studio, and also sheds light on why the artist has lead an aesthetic double life, where everything is questioned and deemed unresolvable. He was born into Nazi Germany, grew up and was trained as a Social Realist in East Germany and fled to west for the artistic freedom it offered. It also explores Thomas Mann's 'never being able to return home' to his family in East Germany and the pain that created. His life's narrative doesn't make him a great artist, the work alone does that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well filmed and very inspiring Sept. 13 2013

Just seeing how he manipulates his colors and respects the media makes me hungry to produce more work as an artist. Great production.
