The overall style of the film was interesting. It was a combination of history, personal details, and information on the artist's approach to painting. Also, the information on the influence of the artists contemporaries was helpful.

There could have been more information on how the artist painted this work. Also, what was going on in the rest of the world outside of France that influenced this piece seemed to not get enough air time.

I am waiting for : Anything on the specific techniques of the artists, and more on how they supported themselves would be appreciated.

The historical context was good, if a bit slanted to the French/English perspective. The explanation at the end of how the painter used color to unify the painting was well done. The references to the painter?s contemporaries and their influence on him were appreciated.

The overly romantic view of the French history which is littered with the oppression or attempt to oppress many groups due to their origins, religion, or economic status affects the films credibility. Also, as a painter I would like to have seen more information on the techniques the painter used.

I am waiting for : A similar treatment for other artists with a little more time devoted to the techniques used by the artist to create his art.

Liberty Leading the People : a painting long accepted as an iconic image of the triumphant French Republic. This was never Delacroix's intention however; he essentially backed the Establishment, and mob violence terrified him. Is the painting’s popularity based on a total misunderstanding?
