Art is the truest expression of the workings of the mind, free from learnt language. More than that, it is the visual expression of culture, politics, society, religion, emotion, zeitgeist, channelled through the brush, chisel, or hands of creative individuals. Understanding art allows us to understand history: to pin it with images, and pepper it with the faces, colours, drama and expression of its time. This series is designed to give bite-sized insights into the world of Art History, bringing one image to life across 20 minutes through discussion with experts. History is never far from view, so each image will be expanded to sit within the cultural and historical context that produced it. Presented by Dr Janina Ramirez Produced by Dan Morelle

Highly rated

The history hit network is a very valued addition to my podcast library. This particular one is something a bit different to straight history with the narrative weaving between the person being interviewed, what they do and an artwork. I really enjoyed the Richard Dadd one but then they have all been excellent
