Next Episode of The Renaissance Unchained is
Four-part series in which Waldemar Januszczak challenges the traditional view of art's most important epoch - the Renaissance.
Waldemar challenges the idea that the renaissance began ion Italy and showcases talent and ideas from other areas of the world.
Waldemar returns to Italy to trace the Italian Renaissance from its perceived origins with Giotto and takes a look at the importance of religious narrative in Italian art. While there were certainly a few aesthetic influences from classical art, the majority of Italian painting and sculpture in the 14th and 15th centuries was created to inspire devotion, especially in the work of Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Fra Angelico.
Waldemar focuses on Venice and its extraordinary impact on art history. He celebrates colour, drama and vitality by looking at the delicate colours of Bellini, the mystery of Giorgione, the splendour of Titian, the drama and chaos of Tintoretto and the glorious banquets of Veronese.
Waldemar looks at the surprising climax of the Renaissance which soon spiraled into madness.
