520 __|a Internationally acclaimed scholar and writer Simon Schama tells the dramatic stories behind eight cutting-edge masterpieces - eight artist troublemakers in deep trouble, eight stories of disaster and triumph, and eight events that ultimately changed the way the world looks at art. With Schama's trademark style of passionate storytelling, the series uses a mix of dramatic re-enactments, atmospheric location shooting and spectacular art photography to create a cause-and-effect analysis of the creative process, placing viewers in a vortex of visual imagination, individual biography and cultural history.
"Van Gogh" - For Van Gogh, painting captured what photography could never do, expressing the surging line and pure color of the mind's eye - yet sweeping him to the edge of madness. Schama explores the meaning and technique of Wheatfield With Crows.
"Picasso" - The moment for Picasso when art collided with politics, and his choice to defy the fascism of WWII, led to the enduring power of Guernica. 120 minutes.
