"I think he's a touchstone of the culture--and I mean more than simply painting and art history. I think he's a touchstone of the culture we live in--a touchstone for the entire culture of the post-war period. I think he is probably the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century, maybe the most important artist of the 20th century.

To say that this may well be the best biographical film we may ever get about its subject does not in any way diminish the achievement of documentary maker Ric Burns.
