Show Me the Monet, Series 2 Episode 15 of 15

Duration: 45 minutes

Facing the Hanging Committee is Craig, 32, from Ipswich, who left his job in retail after ten years and signed up for a degree in fine art. He only graduated last year, but now he has got a chance to make an impact on the London art scene. He is pinning his hopes on a bronze sculpture of a hulk-like figure clutching a teddy bear. But will the judges see a place for it in their exhibition?

Timothy, 24, is so passionate about the Old Masters that he followed in their footsteps and went to Florence to learn to paint. Now he is back in London, and hoping to make a living from his traditional approach to art. Will his portrait of a Florentine jeweller appeal to the judges - and especially to Roy Bolton who is an expert in the Old Masters? If he were to sell his piece at the exhibition, he would use the money to follow his girlfriend out to California.
