Eduardo Montes-Bradley is a passionate advocate for the visual arts. He is a successful, relentless researcher who throws himself into all that he does. Montes-Bradley offers his own unique style and perspective through films on sculpture and music. In films like that on Daniel Chester French, he explores the creative process and the beauty of the artwork through a focus on biography and crucial details of both style and symbolism. Montes-Bradley's films also highlight the sociological dimensions of art, examining the organization of sculptural labor, for example, in his work in progress on the Piccirilli family. He brings to light the crucial activities of key artistic players who have all too often been overlooked.
