Steve Martin is one of the most famous comedians. He is an American actor, musician, comedian, and writer. He was a frequent guest on The Tonight Show. His comedy movies are top class.

But did you know that he can also be an art critic? He is part of the Museum of Modern Art podcasts. They have their own YouTube channel, where they let creative people discuss museum art topics.

In this short documentary, Steve explains visitors how to look at abstract paintings. He looks at paintings by two early pioneers of American abstraction. Let him take you on a journey of seeing shape and color transform into mountains, sky, and water.

Some might say, he can play Andy Warhol. Martin is definitely intelligent, and knows a thing or two about art.
