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

The excitement and interest that Dr. Ramirez has for each piece of art she discusses is evident, and she has picked equally delightful guests along for the ride. Her commentary is thoughtful and sincere, and never cynical. I've thoroughly enjoyed every single episode. Thank you, Dr. Janina!

Can not say enough wonderful things about this podcast channel in this small space but i will try.This wonderful lady brings works of art off the walls of great collections and lets us mere mortals get as close as we may ever get to them.She opens your eyes to the beauty created by the artist and provides insight to meanings included within such creations.
This is a wonderful program and should be listened to all lovers of art and history..most highly recommended.
