So fine . . .


If you've never seen this, you are in for a treat. The video link on the PBS site is for US-resident PC's, but the page is worth checking out for more detail on the artist. But thanks to YouTube, here it is.

Living in Stalinist Prague, Czechoslovakia in the 1950s, a young artist named Paul Fierlinger was angry, depressed and rebellious against the political regime where the Communist government had been in power since the end of World War II.

In STILL LIFE WITH ANIMATED DOGS we meet Roosevelt, Ike, Johnson and Spinnaker, the canine companions who helped shape Fierlinger's evolution as an artist and as a man.
