Women In Art and Mona Lisa...

My sister sent me this movie. It reminds me of Joan Gratz's Oscar winning short "Mona Lisa
Descending a Staircase".

Instead of clay painting like Joan's film, this uses computers and the actual artwork. But it is not as impressive to me because no human hand was required to do the transformations.

Here is Joan's great clay animated classic, "Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase". It is a masterpiece not only because of Joan's ability to recreated the paintings and morph them into others but also for the historical structure and subtext of the film. Remember these are animated clay paintings! Quite an accomplishment.
