Two worlds...two lifetimes
A portrait of the artist Frederick Simpson Coburn
This 24-minute documentary traces F. S. Coburn's life, from his roots in Quebec's Eastern Townships, to his travels abroad and eventual return to Canada.
In a quest to discover the uncle she barely knew, Coburn's great-niece, Teri Coburn, seeks out the landmarks that were central to the artist's story and discovers the women of his past.
A wonderful trip through the countryside of Coburn's creativity; a moving exposé of the artist's later relationship with the provocative and glamorous dancer, Carlotta; a visual feast of paintings, sketches, photographs...
