BBC announces Art Revealed season

To accompany the launch of the Your Paintings website, a pan-BBC television collection of programmes will broadcast this summer under the umbrella title Art Revealed.

On BBC One art critic Alastair Sooke will explore the The World's Most Expensive Paintings, while Waldemar Januszczak considers the more radical aspects of the work of The Impressionists on BBC Two.

All three presenters have also created virtual Guided Tours for the Your Paintings website, further exploring their areas of interest and building on the content of the programmes. These will be available immediately after each programme is broadcast at
