Magnificent!
28 February 2021 | by npvarleySee all my reviews

This is a glorious three part exploration of one of the greatest periods of human art and culture. Waldy is a great presenter, so full of interesting information which is presented in his own inimitable style.

He is not afraid to contradict the ideas and interpretations of the art establishment and sheds new light on some of the greatest artists of the Baroque period.

This is highly recommended!
