Originally released in 1973 but never before available on DVD, Painters Painting is the definitive documentary on the New York School of painters, from 1940-1970.

Among the featured painters are Robert Rauschenberg, William de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Frank Stella, Barnett Newman, Hans Hoffman, Jules Olitski, Philip Pavia, Larry Poons, Robert Motherwell, and Kenneth Noland. Painters Painting is newly digitally remastered and restored by the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the University of Wisconsin Film Department.
