Considers the attempts of many artists to unlearn traditional ways of painting and seeing and to represent objects with such precision that the reproduction will seem to be reality itself. Discusses the thesis that even in these attempts the artist's own tradition influences his vision. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
