Painting Is My Oxygen

This documentary focuses on three painters who know and appreciate each other well, but who differ in style and importance: Corneille, Anton Martineau and Jan Sierhuis.
The 80-year-old Anton Martineau, the bosom friend and companion of, as he himself says, the much more talented Lucebert, the 80-year-old Jan Sierhuis with his consistent oeuvre and the 85-year-old CoBrA painter Corneille. Remco Campert characterizes the older painters in the film with texts from Het Satijnen Hart.
