This series hooks students with modern paintings before moving back in time to make the old masters just as interesting. Host Denise Hicks provides lively commentary on the artists, connecting their styles to the literature and history of their times. She also traces religious influences on art, from the Spanish Inquisition and El Greco’s mysticism to the Protestant Reformation, with Dürer’s line drawings and woodcuts, Cranach’s portrait of Luther, and the faithful pictures Hans Holbein painted to help Henry VIII choose another wife.

Program of Studies:
Visual Arts: Structure in the Arts, Humanity in the Arts, Purposes for Creating the Arts, Processes in the Arts, Interrelationships Among the Arts
