    Essay By Greenaway And Cinematographer Curtis Clark
From wife to widow, one woman is now an expert in the art of murder. Set in 17th century England, "The Draughtsman's Contract" (1982) is a lesson in wordplay and visual opulence. When a husband leaves for a two-week break from his wife, she commissions a local artist to paint a dozen portraits of her estate. He complies if she agrees to be his for the duration. When her husband turns up dead, a closer look at the artist's work may offer the first clue.
