Lesley Keen's Burrellesque

Burrellesque is a short film from 1990 by Scottish animator Lesley Keen. The opening titles explain the film's origin:
In a park at the heart of Glasgow lies the Burrell Collection, home of the art treasures given to the city by Sir William Burrell. This film celebrates the spirit of that collection.
The film takes the form of a photomontage journey to the location of the Burrell Collection, with animated versions of its exhibits popping up along the way. Also of note is the music by Tom Rennie, who gives most of the animated figures their on distinctive sound.

More information, and a video of the complete film, can be found here.
