Product description

Product Description

This award-winning series reveals the full and fascinating stories behind famous works of art, not just how they were created, but also how they influenced others and came to have a life of their own in the modern world.

Sandro Botticelli - La Primavera: Over half a millennium old, this masterpiece remains one of the most perplexing and enigmatic of all great paintings. This film explains how a centuries-old inventory from a Medici house shed new light on its creation. Paolo Uccello - The Battle of San Romano: These most celebrated portrayals of war also represent an artistic breakthrough – the first to apply linear perspective to an outdoor scene. The paintings recount, and have themselves, a troubled history - but they still retain the power to enchant and disturb today. Leonardo da Vinci - The Last Supper: After the recent misinterpretation by Dan Brown in The Da Vinci Code, this film examines the most lionised, analysed, parodied of all Christ-centered artworks – a piece that creates as much controversy about how it has been restored as in how it was created. Piero della Francesca -

The Resurrection: Experts explain the significance of this masterpiece of composition (called “the greatest painting in the world” by Aldous Huxley) and amazing evidence reveals how it saved a town from Allied shelling in World War II.
