Art is the truest expression of the workings of the mind, free from learned language. More than that, it is the visual expression of culture, politics, society, religion, emotion, zeitgeist, channeled 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 a wide-ranging 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 Janina Ramirez

Nearly there...

This is close to being an excellent podcast that covers a good range of works across cultures. I think it would benefit from a little more disagreement regarding some of the works or aspects of them. I know it's going for the 'conversational' approach but the interview can be a bit scatty and I struggle to remember the information - maybe I'm just a moron. This is nearly perfect I want it to be as there is a lack of good art podcasts.

Thank you!

What a brilliant podcast. In the middle of a busy day, to take half an hour and be transported to another world is absolutely magic. Ramirez delivers an analysis that is very accessible and not too high-brow, and her own enthusiasm for the paintings really brings them to life for the listener.

Real, Relavant Art History

Janina's enthusiasm for and commitment to art and art history is infectious and the witty, informal yet informed banter with her guests makes for a compelling , unmissable podcasts. Reccomended!
