I’m interested.....
This isn’t a review of the programme since it starts this evening. But I’m interested in the title. I wonder if it really will cover paintings of the world? Or only the Western world? If so, why doesn’t the title reflect this? The world is a rather large place and has many civilisations with amazing art. I’m looking forward to seeing the programmes and seeing how much of the world is actually covered. I hope it will be a lot!

The Hay Wain by John Constable The stories behind The Hay Wain by John Constable, tone of the most famous paintings of the English countryside ever created, delving into what the it really represents. This seemingly simple, bucolic scene may look idyllic, but this canvas is really about one man's obstinate refusal to conform, a yearning for acceptance by his peers, family tragedy, and a blinkered refusal to see the harsh realities of rural life in early 19th-century England. As Constable's story heads to Paris, Andrew explains how this simple British scene would ultimately inspire a group of Frenchmen to give the world Impressionism
