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

Puts art in its context

Dr Ramirez puts art in its political, cultual and social context with the help of experts in their fields. It is of a high scholarly standard at a level that doesn't exclude the layman who may have no historical background yet are interested in these works of art. The conversation between Dr Ramirez and the guest flows smoothly and it sounds like they are enjoying themselves discussing these subjects.
Dr Ramirez is clearly in her element and appears to have a very good and natural style of drawing out information from her guests with a balance between asking questions of them and letting them explain and reveal what they know about the subject.
