    CURIOUS CALLBACK: Episode #44, Shock Art: Goya's Saturn Devouring His Son (Season 4, Episode 5)

    Works that we take for granted today as masterpieces, or as epitomes of the finest of fine art, could also have been considered ugly, of poor quality, or just bad when they were first made. With the passage of time comes a calm and an acceptance. But that doesn’t change the fact that there are many works peppered throughout art history that were straight-up shocking to the public when they were first presented decades, or even hundreds of years ago.
    Today's work of "shock art:" Goya's Saturn Devouring His Son.

AliceFennessy ,

The art history pod i always dreamed of

I can't believe I only just discovered this! Jessica's passion for art is contagious. It's so refreshing to hear a curator who is able/willing to try and communicate the fascinating stories of art with audiences outside of the academic realm. Obsessed!

Oooh

I loved walking around listening to the episode of about Mona Lisa. I had a no idea of all that history and intrigue. Jennifer's delivery of the information is top shelf, listen to this great podcast!!
