  • Description

    Farnham, Surrey.

    C/Us of a cave prehistoric painting showing men hunting wild boars etc. M/S of Douglas Mazonowicz, a leading artist in serigraphy (creating prints by the silk screen method), working on a reproduction of a cave painting. He is painting over a silk screen; which he then lifts up to remove the painting underneath; it is of three horses.

    M/S and C/Us of an assistant mixing some inks at another table as the commentator explains the silk screen printing process.

    M/S as Douglas puts the painting, at a later stage in the process, into position under the screen; commentator tells us this 'Frieze of Little Horses' is one of many paintings discovered in the famous cave at Lascaux in France. The assistant brings the mixed ink over and pours it onto the edge of the screen.

    Douglas draws the ink across the screen with a squidger thing (does anyone know what these are called?), then lifts the screen, peels the painting from underneath it with his assistant 's help and they place it on a rack to dry.

    C/U of the finished painting drying on top of the rack. C/Us of other reproduction prehistoric paintings, showing people and animals.

    Note: There is a typed article by Douglas Mazonowicz on file about his work, plus correspondence between him and Pathe on the shooting of this story.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
