Jules Olitski / Mark Golden lecture (1997)

Jules Olitski is a major figure in American painting and Mark Golden is a paint manufacturer and president of Golden Artist Colors, Inc. These tapes document Jules Olitski and Mark Golden delivering a lecture entitled "The Artist's View: Color, Technology, and Style in Postwar Art" as part of the Center's "Colors of Invention" symposium held at NMAH in 1997. This lecture and discussion offer an unusual look at how the invention of new pigments, often at the urging of artists, together with new methods of application, advance the vocabulary and depth of painting.
