Les Quatre Saisons / The Four Seasons by Poussin (1660-1664)

Le Mont Jingting en automne / Mount Jingting in Autumn by Shitao (1671)

L’Astronome  / The Astronomer by Vermeer (1668)

Les Quatre Saisons was the last set of four oil paintings completed by the French painter Nicolas Poussin.  Shitao was the most skilled painters and calligraphers of 16th century China. The film Le Mont Jingting en automne reveals the complex technique and philosophy underlying Shitao’s oeuvre. L’Astronome delves into whether Vermeer used more than just optics to create his extraordinarily naturalistic paintings.
