At 18 minutes long, Life with Gorky is a shade longer than the average video posted here. However, the stories told by Arshile Gorky’s wife, Agnes “Mouguch” Magruder, are well worth sitting through. A fascinating insight into the artist’s life and mind.

Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective began life at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the exhibition is now on view at Tate Modern through May 3, 2010. The above video comes via Tate Channel.
