Stan Brakhage's "The Dante Quartet" (1987)

The Dante Quartet (1987), painted over photographed imagery, is one of Brakhage's lushest works: in the "Purgation" segment, colors and images collide with and grind against each other, and in "Existence Is Song," contrasting colors, moonscapes, and volcanoes burst forth like an acre of flowers blooming.

- Fred Camper (in a capsule review he calls Stan Brakhage "a master of subjective vision.")
