The Mystery of Art
The film traces how humans beings have made 'art' from the earliest recorded times. Until the fundamental changes in the way human societies viewed themselves we know as the Renaissance, artists were the servants of the rulers. This is true of all human groups throughout the world. Now in the age of individual freedom artists have come to enjoy a new role. The film explores this change and how art has come to be such a powerful and fruitful force in our daily lives.
