Unlike one reviewer who finds his extra long clothes a distraction, I have not noticed his clothes. He is too interesting for that. This DVD is a collections of his television programmes shown on Sky Arts and they are excellent examinations of the Courtauld Collections. His attention to detail leaves little unnoticed and his facility with language makes him an excellent guide and critic. Not everyone can express complex ideas about art while in the glare of the lights.
Marlowe can and does. Highly recommended.
