Description & Features+

"Simon Schama's The Power Of Art" - Beautiful. Fascinating. Emotional. Art is all of the above. But only a few are powerful. These are the works that not only lift you off your feet in their sheer artistry, they forever alter the human psyche. Focusing on eight iconic works of art, "Power Of Art" reveals the history of visual imagination through the ages, from the murderous world of baroque Rome to paranoid, revolutionary Paris; from the carnage of civil-war Spain to the paradox of 1950's New York, caught between Cold War jitters and Manhattan glitter. A combination of dramatic reconstruction, spectacular photography and Simon Schama's unique, personal style of storytelling transport the viewer back to the intense moments that great works were conceived and born. The eight works of art profiled in this series are: "Caravaggio's David And Goliath;" "Bernini's The Ecstasy Of St. Theresa," "Rembrandt's The Conspiracy Of Claudius Civilis;" "David's Death Of Marat;" "Turner's The Slave Ship;" "Van Gogh's Self-Portrait;" "Picasso's Guernica" and "Rothko's Seagram Building Murals." Disc 1 - "Caravaggio: Painting Gets Physical," "Gianlorenzo Bernini: The Miracle Worker," "Rembrandt Van Rijn: Rough Stuff In The Halls Of The Rich" Disc 2 - "Jacques-Louis David: Airbrushing The Revolution," "JWM Turner: Painting Up A Storm," "Van Gogh: Painting From The Inside Of The Head" Disc 3 - "Picasso: Modern Art Goes Political," "Rothko: The Music Of Beyond In The City Of Glitter".
