Prophecy is a rare, intimate exploration of a single oil painting, that reveals the motive and techniques behind each stroke of paint - employing state-of-the art motion control rigs to depict the artist at work. What starts as a blank canvas becomes Peter Howson’s monumental oil painting, 'Prophecy'.
A wry and darkly comic Glaswegian, he draws inspiration from world unrest, religious beliefs and mythology, along with his heroes Goya, DaVinci and El Greco. Following every moment until the canvas is sold, this unique, visually-stunning documentary portrait illuminates the apocalyptic world of Howson’s work.
