Synopsis
Each episode of Portrait of an Artist offers an intimate peek at the life and work of an important figure in the world of art. Not just a dry discussion of the major works, this is an exploration of the environment that produced the artist and influenced his work. From interviews with family and friends, to short trips to the artist's favorite haunts, no stone is left unturned. In this particular episode, viewers explore the life and work of Brother Thomas Bezanson, a Benedictine monk who fused Eastern and Western art traditions in his sculpture. This video won a 1992 Telly Award. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
