To celebrate Home Movie Day 2014, the Archives of American Art is sharing a few of the home movies from our collections. Robert Laurent was an American painter, sculptor, teacher, etcher, and writer from Brooklyn, New York & Ogunquit, Maine. Laurent studied under Hamilton Easter Field, and both were from Brooklyn, N.Y. and were involved in the summer art colony in Oguniquit, Maine. The film includes footage of Laurent at work in his Brooklyn studio, of Fairmont Park, Pennsylvania, of family members in Brittany, of Gaspe, of Woodstock, New York including fellow artists Arnold Blanche, Carl Walters, Emil Ganso, Ernest Fiene, Stefan Hirsch, Rudy Dirks, and others, and scenes from a cocktail party in Ogunquit, Maine (given by Ker Fravaal) with Ogunquit artists and cartoonists. From the Robert Laurent home movies (1933-1938) at the Archives of American Art. Transferred from 16mm motion picture film to VHS video, from which this digital copy was made.
