The first major film to reveal the motive and techniques behind each stroke of paint as the artist creates. This rare, intimate exploration of a single oil painting plunges the audience into the artist’s obsessive mind as Peter Howson’s blank canvas emerges into his monumental panting; Prophecy.

Working from imagination, darkly comic Howson draws inspiration from world unrest, religious beliefs and mythology, utilizing the techniques of his heroes: Goya, Davinci, and El Greco.

We discover the intentions and difficulties that push him to create this ambitious, detailed masterpiece, following every moment until the painting is sold in New York City.
