It was a Christmas gift and I have continued to enjoy watching these dvds about famous artwork. Van Gogh's "The Sunflowers," Seurat's "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte 1884," Picasso's "Les Desmoiselles d'Avignon" are among some of the paintings discussed in this top notch series.
Sometimes, when I'm tired of the rain or want a pick me up, I watch an episode and feel excited again about making art. I enjoy learning about the history of these famous pieces, how they fit in to the context of their time, what effects they had on the future of art, the technicalities of the painting, and everything else the BBC throws into the discussions. Plenty to chew on.
I think you might enjoy these, too. Check them out at Amazon here.
Note: I do not get a commission or any benefit from recommending these to you, only the joy of sharing a good resource with fellow artists. What do you use for a pick me up?
