Product Notes

Every Picture Tells a Story is a lively, informative look at the secrets behind eight masterpieces. Works by da Vinci, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Giorgione, Caravaggio, and van Eyck take on new and deeper meanings in this engaging eight-part series. Bonus features include a 20-page viewer's guide and exclusive extras that take the educational experience beyond the screen. With his characteristic wit, noted U.K. art critic Waldemar Januszczak turns his educated eye to eight masterpieces of European painting, unraveling the secrets behind each. What did Gainsborough intend for the conspicuous void in Mr and Mrs Andrews? Why did Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa capture the world's imagination? How did Manet shock French society with his Le déjeuner sur l'herbe (Luncheon on the Grass)? from New York City to Paris to Rome, Januszczak searches out the art experts, literary and artistic allusions, and historical records - not to mention juicy gossip - to expose long-held secrets within the gilded frames.
