4.0 out of 5 stars Booklist review: December 12, 2003
By A Customer
Art historian Tim Marlow comfortably hosts this 14-part introduction to the world's most acclaimed artists. In the sampled, Leonardo, Marlow travels to Florence and Milan to trace the career of painter and inventor Leonardo da Vinci. Carefully analyzing The Annunciation, the host contrasts flaws in perspective with the painting's precise natural details. The Last Supper, Mona Lisa, and St. John the Baptist are similarly examined for composition, painting techniques, and use of light. Da Vinci's work as mapmaker, anatomist, and military planner are also discussed, as are controversies surrounding his life. Nice location footage and insightful commentary stand out in these solid introductions for high-school and public library collections. Other series titles similarly profile El Greco, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Bio's, Very Informative February 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
All the bio's last no more than 30 minutes & start from childhood to death.
It goes into some deep details about the artists and who commissioned them.
Shows beautiful artworks, too.
I ordered these because I wanted to show them to the Elementary, Middle School & High School kids I work with.
Out of all the great artists listed I would only be able to show two artists because there is nudity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great presenter and series. June 24, 2009
Tim Marlow is such a good presenter of art. He unpicks the most intricate detail in a piece of work and explains the stories within a painting that otherwise would go unexplained. I really enjoy the historical context which gives a picture of the life and times of the artist. And of course where would we be without Marlow's explanation of the technical skill and immense talent of the artists? When there's so much dross on TV these days, it's great to have a series like this on DVD at your fingertips.
