The Private Life of a Masterpiece

This is a fantastic series of history of art, focusing on individual art works.

I like this format very much.
Rather than focusing on each artists, then introducing some of their works, it puts a spot light on a particular work, and then expands its story to the artist's life and society which he lived in.

Very informative and they're all thoughtfully presented.
I particularly like its narrator, very calm and pleasant voice.

They cover a wide range of subjects.

Botticelli: La Primavera
Delacroix: Liberty Leading the People
Manet: Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe
Munch: The Scream

The list goes on......
All together, it amounts to 22 episodes of finely crafted documentaries.

It's a sheer pleasure.
