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

Fun, quickly, and inspiring

Janina’s enthusiasm for an interdisciplinary approach to all things art AND history inspires me, as an educator, to see beyond the specific subject written on my course code. This podcast is diverse in content but never dull in tone, and it’s one of my very fave notifications to receive. Give it a a listen. I dare you not to learn someone (while also kind of wishing you could grab a pint with her and have a really cool chat)!

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!
