Best!!!

Tried to find an art history podcast for soooo long (it’s difficult to discuss art through audio) and this one checks all the boxes. Not voiced by a bored sounding dude, not a limited series, not bouncing back and forth between tipsy sorority sisters. Just a calm, descriptive lady choosing really interesting pieces. I only wish there was more content! Thank you for your wonderful show

Incredibly Informative

I grew up with an artist mother who would drag me to museums all of the time. Subsequently, I rebelled and embarassingly now know NOTHING about art. I know I enjoy it but I know nothing about it. I love Allyson's podcast. She makes art accessible and relateable. I learn so much and I'm able to retain the information becuase of the way she presents it. Absolutely reccomend for the art lover and the art dummy (like me) ;)

The Mysterious Mona Lisa

Episode 1 on the Mona Lisa is filled with amazing informaiton. This is one of my favorite portraits, and Leonardo is one of my favorite painters. Great analysis and history of this iconic portrait.
