Over four films which cover nature, the mind, storytelling and design, Andrew Graham-Dixon reveals the history of art and the lives and works of great artists with a startling freshness. He shows us how drawing continues to be indispensable to the making of the modern world and how drawing, innate in all of us, can help us see the world and ourselves anew.
The dozens of examples he showed us were reliably breathtaking… accompanied by fascinating background information and shrewd criticism… a civilised and stimulating piece of television
A welcome antidote to art history that has been dumbed into the ground
His shrewd and heartfelt reflections on artists are hard to beat… he delivers revelatory insights
Engrossing and informative
