Thurlbeck Studios shoots documentary of Jean Miotte founder of the Informel movement of painting in France.

Just completed this year Thurlbeck Studios completed a documentary on the French artist Jean Miotte, the founder of the Informel movement of painting. Informel is often regarded as the European equivalent of Abstract Expressionism, it is
distinguished from its American counterpart,by a loss of faith in progress and the collective possibilities of an avant garde. The artists who came to be grouped as Informel include, Jean Miotte,Jean-Paul Riopelle, Emil Schumacher and Kazuo Shiraga among others, claimed an individual freedom embodied in the spontaneity of the
gestural brushstroke.
