How To Paint a Masterpiece

A new documentary project about the history of art, linking painting, the artist and the social context in which it was made. It starts with Vermeer, Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age but will broaden to include Italian Renaissance art, French painting in the eighteenth and nineteen centuries, looking at how artists treated composition, colour and the world around them.
