A Little Phantasy on a 19th-century Painting, by NORMAN MC LAREN, 1946, 3 min 10 sec (or 37sec)
Bφcklin's painting (version Berlin) as set design for an animated Phantasy!
Isle of the Dead, by the nineteenth-century painter Arnold Boecklin, is the subject of this McLaren film experiment. The spectral island wakes to mysterious life, flickers in an ethereal light and fades again into the dark--the whole effect heightened by an interpretive musical score by composer Louis Applebaum.
