Adventure in Art, An (television)

Adventure in Art, An (television) Television show, aired April 30, 1958. Directed by Wilfred Jackson and C. August Nichols. Walt, using Robert Henri’s book, The Art Spirit, as a reference, explains how people see art in different ways, including the history of silhouettes, and he has four of his artists, each with a different style, paint one tree. That segment, featuring Marc Davis, Eyvind Earle, Joshua Meador, and Walt Peregoy, was later released as an educational film entitled 4 Artists Paint 1 Tree. The show also emphasizes how music can be an inspiration to artists, as in Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor from Fantasia.
