Season 1 Episode 7/9

Simon Schama looks at the links between colour and spirituality. He begins in the great Gothic cathedrals of Amiens and Chartres in northern France, before moving on to 16th-century Venice, where masterpieces by Giovanni Bellini and Titian contested the assumption that drawing would always be superior to colouring. He also sees how Francisco Goya's Black Paintings drained colour from the world of light, views dazzling colour on a mass-produced scale with the Japanese woodblock prints of the 18th and 19th centuries. Schama ends in Matisse's great chapel at Vence, where colour is used - against a backdrop of the Second World War - to enrapture, enlighten and as a path to God

He uses the works of both dead and contemporary artists from the 20th and 21st centuries to seek answers to these questions. Last in the series
