Pressing Notes

A series of 8 mini educational programs, the artwork on Art Awareness Collection from The National Gallery of Art makes no mention of the chapter stops anywhere on the original artwork. The chapter information was present on the subsequent printed jackets. For those with the original packaging, the chapters are:
Side 1
  1. Rembrandt
  2. John Singleton Copley
  3. A Nation of Painters
  4. Fragonard
Side 2
  1. Goya
  2. Joseph Mallord William Turner
  3. Degas
  4. Renior
Produced from 16mm film, the video is as good as can be expected from these films. The audio lacks almost any high frequencies and there are obvious pops where the programs are spliced together.

Release History

Art Awareness Collection from The National Gallery of Art was never reissued on LaserDisc.
