Looking at modern art

13 episodes, 1956, WQED (Pittsburgh)

From WNET:

"This series is designed for those who find modern art baffling. Gordon E. Washburn, director of the department of fine arts of Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, acts as the viewers’ guide in perusing more than 100 priceless examples of masterpieces of modern art. He discusses the leading artists of various modern art movements and examines their motives, their ideas, and their works to give the viewer an understanding, and it is hoped, an appreciation of this contemporary art."
