Because I Was a Painter

Cognet, Christophe
In 1945, when the Allies liberated the concentration camps, they discovered thousands of secretly created artworks. With unprecedented access to paintings, drawings, etchings and sculptures held in collections around the world, BECAUSE I WAS A PAINTER conducts a gripping and fascinating investigation into art that captures, reflects and inspires in difficult times. *"BECAUSE I WAS A PAINTER maintains a funereal rhythm, alternating images of artworks with long-distance views of camp barracks as they are today, the camera moving slowly and stealthily." Stephen Holden, The New York Times
