DVD: Eberhard Equit -- An Intimate Talk

by Bryan Swoboda

He's been called a genius, a visionary, a master artist. His two books of mineral paintings grace the shelves of mineral collectors around the globe and are considered the pre-eminent works in that field. He always paints at a 1-to-1 size ratio (his paintings are the same size as the specimens) and his work is so precise that owners of the specimens often find details in his paintings that they had never noticed before.

This is Eberhard Equit, and this is the first and only film on the story behind his artwork, filmed on location during one of Equit's commissions, with additional footage shot in his homeland of Germany. Equit shares with us his history, his classical training and his incredibly detail-oriented techniques for making some of the most realistic mineral paintings in the world.

Interviewed by Daniel J. Trinchillo, Jr. of Fine Minerals International; this is the true story of the legend that is -- Eberhard Equit.

[Running time: 70 minutes]
