Makes me love renaissance art

I started listening as preparation for a trip to Florence- so I could actually appreciate the artworks I would see. I have learnt so much, and am now planning on seeking out paintings that I wasn't otherwise going to see. While detailed, the episodes are really approachable to an art novice like me, and I'm really enjoying learning about artists who aren't as well known.

Arwen loves history ,

Yes Listen to this

Just discovered this podcast and I am really enjoying it - the podcast on Masaccio was very good -for those of us that are not art historians if you are planning to travel the Italian penisula anytime soon this is a great addition to your reference guides - very much in the style of Mike Duncan from the History of Rome - which i think a pretty good compliment . Well done Denis 0 i hope you keep this up :)
