The Calder video I wrote about is part of the "Collectors Series," from the
Museum of Modern Art. I have not seen any of the videos, but passed on the
information in case anyone wanted to check it out. Sorry if there was any
confusion (about the Calder video).

Incidentally the videos cost $19.95 (which seems reasonable) plus $3.95 s/h
for the first tape (and $1.50 for each additional, up to $9.95). Artists in
the series include Calder, Jasper Johns, Matisse, Diego Rivera, Marcel
Duchamp, Pissaro/Pollock/deKooning (one video), Edward J. Steichen, Alfred
Stieglitz, Balthus, Bancusi, Larry Rivers, George Grosz, Claes
Oldenburg/Coosje Van Bruggen, PLUS a variety of videos about film makers,
one about Vienna 1900, 20th Century American Art, Works by Women (and
another about Anna Sokolow, Alice Neel, and Muriel Rukhauser), and finally
The Pantheon and the Trevi.

Has anyone seen any videos from this series? What did you think? It seems
like at the very least, there would be a lot of great images!

Sincerely, Leah
