    So I found this Youtube channel called nerdwriter1, and this is probably the best channel i've ever found




    Only posting a couple of videos, his one on Picasso is fucking brilliant as well. They all are, really. Was wondering if anyone knows of any other videos/websites they can share that do something similar? And thoughts from anyone whos taken time to watch some of this guy's understanding art series.

    I found him through his Mulholland Drive video, and pretty sure someone posted his Heat video in the Heat thread. So he does more than just paintings. Fucking amazing channel.

    I'm far from being an expert but I do love classical art. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I like his Seinfeld video best. I came across that Flaubert quote he uses in a graduate seminar a few years ago and Seinfeld was the first thing that came to mind. His Vertigo breakdown is pretty good, too.

    Naturally, you pitch the guy's channel with the most boring subject he analyzes ( :p ). As soon as I think of painting, and especially of Picasso, I think of Brian Regan.

    Idk maybe boring for some, but I think his Picasso video and the Death Of Socrates are amongst my favorite.

    If I had to choose, the Vertigo video might be my number one though. Just an amazing job how he breaks down the blocking of that scene. This whole channel is fucking genius though.

    after studying paleolithic art [a bit] back in college, and upon taking up painting, i do find myself wanting to know more about art. i am kind of a brute, though, and so -- whatever, i try to visit art museums when i get the chance.

    This is awesome. I was mildly obsessed with Renaissance art back in the day. Can't wait to watch these.
