A Screening of This Beautifully Animated Film Comes to Kiechel Fine Art

Kiechel Fine Art is proud to present a screening of artist and filmmaker, Michael Burton’s animated, historical film, A Gold Slipper!

This film tells the story of Marshall McKann, a coalman, who attends a concert by vocalist, Kitty Ayrshire, with his wife and her friend, Mrs. Post at the Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. He doesn’t attend concerts because “when he became a person of substance, he stopped that sort of nonsense.” But, the incorrigible Mrs. Post insists on seeing Ms. Ayrshire when she learns there are seats available behind the piano for the sold-out show.

Kitty Ayrshire is a true artist, adored by fans in Europe and America. She’s equally smart and mischievous. She piques McKann’s interest during the concert by brushing his knee each time she enters the stage. After the concert, on a chance encounter with McKann, Kitty hitches a ride to the 11:25 PM train to New York where she proceeds to seduce and intellectually dominate him by questioning his position on woman, the arts, industry, religion, and society.

A Gold Slipper contains vivid descriptions of clothing, architecture, locations, and personalities that eerily mirror points-of-view one might hear today. The video tableaux in this exhibition are key scenes from the short-animated film. The pochoir prints represent the opulence is associated with Kitty’s character. A Gold Slipper will be available through February 15, 2020, at Kiechel Fine Art, which specializes in 19th and 20th century American Art, Old Master and Contemporary prints, as well as regional and national contemporary art.
