Love to Learn about Art History

If you're interested in how vaarious art concepts fit into the realm of art history this is a podcast for you. Dr.Mark Staff Brandl eurodite and enthusiastic approach to explaining themes and ideas in the world of art I find to be enriching and enjoyable. Please give a listen

Great topics but lacking in delivery

There’s great content here, but the delivery is mechanical and lackluster. I would love to hear about these subjects in a more traditional podcast format, with other experts weighing in and not having the information read from a script.
