Rings of Passion: Five Emotions in World Art

The five interconnected Olympic Rings, representing five
continents, not only symbolize the kinship of the human family, but serve as
emblems of basic human emotions shared by all. Through a special exhibition
created for the 1996 Centennial Olympics, audiences discover how the
expressive and emotional power of great works of art communicates across
barriers of culture and time. This documentary special explores the power of
art -- from startlingly different cultural contexts -- to evoke five
fundamental emotions: love, anguish, awe, triumph and joy. The program is
simulcast on PBS and OVATION, the Arts Network.

Picasso Paints Picasso

More than any artist in history, Pablo Picasso painted his
autobiography. His canvases and sculptures are as explicit as any written
journal or diary. He recorded his emotions, his travels, his politics, his
secret life and particularly his views of women in paint. This program shows
how, wittingly or unwittingly, Picasso portrayed himself and chronicles the
life and work of one of the 20th century's most influential painters.
