Very Informative, simply brilliant!
17 June 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This show is definitely one of the best on our screens which deals with art. It is rich in detail, and not only incorporates information about the artworks but analyzes them and provides interviews with professional people who provide their own interpretation of the artworks. This information gives the artworks a whole new dimension and really makes us look at them not as just paint on canvas or simply stone, but as deep spiritual works of pure genius. For example, in the episode dealing with Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Grande Jatte in 1886, it transforms the women who is fishing to the left of the masterpiece into a prostitute 'fishing' for business. It is truly very informative and does not bore. This show also provides great information on the artist involved, delving deep into the person's personal life. It also tells of the history the work experienced. Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper had stones thrown at it and the apostles eyes were scrapped off with knives by French troops. Visually the show is great. The image is very clear and precise. This show should not be missed. I'd have to give it 10 out of 10.
