Summary:
Guide is in Russian.
Speaker begins by noting a great tradition in American painting of experimentation and risk. He goes on to develop two main ideas that developed in contemporary American Art. First, when an artist creates, the final product does not need to look like if it was taken with a camera. Second, the art must be a reflection of the emotions and psychological state of the artist, and express ideas and feelings - like music.
The guide is repeated twice on the original tape.
