You wrote that "Dan raises the excellent example of _I've Heard the
Mermaids Singing_, which, IMHO, contains one of the most innovative
"depictions" of original works of art in film."
In fact, another film from Canada's Studio D/NFB (now defunct, alas)
and with excellent artwork as an integral part of the film (it moved me so
much I actually bought a huge painting from a like-minded artist) is Lea
Pool's ANNE TRISTER.
