Art Revealed on the BBC
There's a great lineup of TV on the BBC for lovers of paintings, as the BBC's 'Art Revealed' season starts later this month.
The season begins on Sunday 10th July when art critic Alastair Sooke explores the stories behind The World's Most Expensive Paintings on BBC One.
Then on Monday 11th July, art historian James Fox comes to BBC Four with British Masters, arguing that we have undervalued the quality and impact of the last century of British art.
In late July, Waldemar Januszczak will examine the more radical works of The Impressionists, in a three part series for BBC Two.
All three presenters will also be featuring on Your Paintings, with Guided Tours of the nation's art collection. You can already hear James Fox talk about a selection of paintings by the British Masters, and what it tells us about twentieth century Britain.
You can also hear Alastair Sooke talking about some of the best artists whose work you can see for free, in galleries and collections around the country.
Waldemar Januszczak's tour of the Impressionists is coming soon...
