25 videos on YouTube

We've just realized that we've reached 25 video uploads on YouTube.

It's time to organize a bit.

Here is how we suggest to navigate Francis Cunningham YouTube channel.
Start with the top page where on the right hand side you'll find a series of playlists.   

1) Saints Exhibition
This was our first video project in March 2009, recorded during Dick's exhibition at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY.
Click here for "Saints Exhibition" playlist.

2) Still Life
This list includes videos analyzing still life paintings, from subject matter, composition and color to the viewers' reception. We've covered, so far, Dick's Summer 2009 still life from the Berkshires "Studio Interior," and an earlier painting from 1967 "Still Life with Basket, Gourds and Oranges."  We also made a very short video about "Chime Knife and the Barking Spud" (1970) regarding the choice of subject matter.

3) Portraits
In this series Dick talks about some of his models, introducing them one by one and analyzing the life-sized figures.

4) Composition
This is the first of the general topics on painting, where Dick talks about the designs within the design, the finder and the first four lines (edges of the painting) of the composition.
Click here for Composition playlist.

5) Commentary
This is intended to contain videos on variety of topic.  So far we've done a commentary on the torn Picasso in the Metropolitan Museum, focusing on restoration.
