Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop
Great artists unique visions and perceptions have fascinated and delighted -- and sometimes outraged -- people throughout history.
Now, this CPTV/PBS series offers viewers the opportunity to experience that unique artistic vision in a new way. The series travels to the same renowned gardens, groves, seascapes and mountainous terrains that served as the inspiration for some of the world's most celebrated and familiar works of art.
Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop travels to Claude Monet's home in Giverny, France, to paint his water lily garden and to the asylum of St. Paul de Mausole in St. Remy en Provence, where Vincent van Gogh committed himself in 1889 and painted many of his masterpieces, including Starry Night, Olive Trees and Cypresses. With his easel and painting supplies in hand, Dunlop scales the rugged terrain of Kaaterskill Falls in upstate New York, where Hudson River painters Thomas Cole, Asher Durand and Sanford Gifford all found inspiration. Dunlop's journey also leads him to Pierre-Auguste Renoir's home and garden at Cagnes Sur Mer, France; the Lieutenant River in Old Lyme, Connecticut; the white cliffs of Etretat on France's Normandy Coast; and Contentment Island off the coast of Connecticut, where John Frederick Kensett painted the Long Island Sound. This CPTV National series premiered in June on PBS and on Saturday, June 28, at 6:00 p.m. on CPTV.
