)-- Sickert vs. Sargent: Britain’s Masters of Modern Art
Kultur announces the DVD release of Sickert vs. Sargent: Britain’s Masters of Modern Art will be available on November 16, 2010 for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
A Film by Waldemar Januszczak, Sickert vs. Sargent: Britain’s Masters of Modern Art brings to life two of the biggest characters in modern British art; Walter Sickert - the gruff, aggressive man-of-the-people; John Singer Sargent - the urbane and charming dandy. Focusing on some of the most beautiful and alarming paintings ever made in Britain; pictures of aristocrats and prostitutes, coronations and killings, opera houses and music halls, and will evoke the long-lost atmosphere of Edwardian London. But above all it will show that from their two outposts in Chelsea and Camden, Sickert and Sargent were waging a war whose legacy still haunts us today. These two larger-than-life immigrants were battling for nothing less than the future soul of British art.
