Orson Welles hosts and narrates this broad review of "modern art", from Cezanne and his contemporaries to the early 70s when the film was made. It touches briefly on most of the important artists, incorporating interviews and whenever possible. Informative but really a starting point, with too much emphasis on contemporary artists who never made much of an impact.
