This is a rare, intimate exploration of a single oil painting and the first major film to reveal the motive and techniques behind each stroke of paint as the artist creates. The audience is plunged into the artist’s obsessive mind, what starts as a blank canvas, emerges Peter Howson’s monumental oil painting PROPHECY.
Working from his imagination, the darkly comic Glaswegian painter Peter Howson draws inspiration from world unrest, religious beliefs and mythology. Utilizing the techniques of his heroes – Goya, DaVinci and El Greco – we discover the intentions and difficulties that push him to create this ambitious, masterful, detailed painting. Following every moment until the canvas is sold in New York, employing state-of-the art motion control rigs to depict the artist at work, this visually-stunning documentary portrait illuminates the apocalyptic world of Howson’s PROPHECY.
