Description

Watch a five minute preview of Kevin Sullivan's latest film, Out of the Shadows. Narrated by Donald Sutherland and directed by Kevin Sullivan (Anne of Green Gables, Road To Avonlea). For hundreds of years the public has only seen the surface of famous masterpieces by artists such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt; as well as medieval religious treasures such as The Norfolk Triptych. Now, through a melding of innovative scientific techniques and art connoisseurship, completely different paintings and important clues about the artists themselves are being uncovered one layer at a time. Out of the Shadows explores just how closely science allows art historians to enter an artist's psyche. The question of why an artist would choose to paint over their own masterpiece is explored in this fascinating documentary that ultimately rewrites the foundations of art history.
