5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful history of art 24 Jun 2009
By Sally
Tim Marlow is such a good presenter of art. He unpicks the most intricate detail in a piece of work and explains the stories within a painting that otherwise would go unexplained. I really enjoy the historical context which gives a picture of the life and times of the artist. And of course where would we be without Marlow's explanation of the technical skill and immense talent of the artists? When there's so much dross on TV these days, it's great to have a series like this on DVD at your fingertips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Perfect introduction for my kids 3 April 2007
By Steve B
Really enjoyed these films - clear, accesible, well-shot and Tim Marlow is just the sort of person you'd want with you on foreign trips - he's SO interesting. I came to the series after downloading the book off the net and normally books are better but in this case I'm not sure. I guess I liked seeing all the location footage too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight talking and informative 5 April 2007
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this DVD. Tim Marlow is a great art critic - I have seen him on some of the Five art shows as well - and really brings the work to life without being boring and too academic!

Its great to get a historical perspective on the art world as well, as it helps to put some of the modern art in perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Tim 22 July 2010
This quite simply, is the best way to watch and learn about any artist. Tim is one of the best presenters around and pitches his show perfectly in every way, ignoring his own views and zoning in on only the artist and his work. He is energetic in his approach and very knowledgable, without being pretentious, therefore I thoroughly recommend this Great Artists DVD.

My only criticism would be, I wish the programmes were longer, but I suppose that relates to Channel 5, the original broadcaster who showed this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marlowe in the Galleries 20 Sep 2011
By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Unlike one reviewer who finds his extra long clothes a distraction, I have not noticed his clothes. Was he wearing some? He is far too interesting for that sort of distraction. These DVDs are collections of his television series shown on Sky Arts and they are excellent examinations of the artists. His attention to detail leaves little unnoticed, his authoritative yet unpretentious mann and his facility with language make him an excellent guide and critic. Not everyone can express complex ideas about art while in the full glare of the lights.

Marlowe can and does. Highly recommended.
