GREAT!

It’s been so long since I was in an art history class so it is nice to get a new perspective on this intriguing subject. Im so grateful for the host and her scholarly research and the attempts to pronounce names correctly, a task most people online do not bother with. The only criticism I have is, now that you have run through all the “usual suspects” of art history, how about some fresh perspectives. I’d like to see a series on female surrealist, like Remedios Varo, Dorothea Tanning and Leonora Carrington to name a few. How about a new take on Tamara De Lempicka? Fernando Botero, so misunderstood as the guy who paints “fat people “ could use a thorough review. Let’s shed some light on some well deserved art masters that might not be so familiar. I love the women behind the art series you did!

Glad there’s a bunch to binge!

I accidentally discovered this podcast and am LOVING it! I’ve always loved art, though I’m no professional, and these stories have made art history become even more alive!

the placement of ads is unfortunate

Like the art history and stories but the amount of ads and their placement ruins it for me. takes me out of the story.
