The Victorians DVD,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Victorians [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD after reading the associated book. Jeremy Paxman's narrative brought the paintings alive showing how social history was recorded in paint if only you know how to 'read' the images. Some of these paintings would no longer be considered 'fashionable' but their beauty cannot be denied. The depictions of the poorer classes and the treatment of women were particularly powerful. An excellent DVD and a must for anyone interested in art, art history or even just history.
