I really enjoyed seeing these works and understanding how this show was curated. The idea behind this series is to give viewers the opportunity to see particular works of art as if they were going to the exhibition themselves. Of course, the series dwells on a major work or two in each gallery room, and not every single work. I did get a sense of Leonardo's Milan period, which is what the exhibition was about. There was also information on how pieces were restored and how frames are rebuilt to fit the restored paintings. It was also good to see works compared and contrasted with one another. I learned a lot from this exhibition. Very enjoyable.
I've watched the first two episodes of the series. It is as if we are given a behind the scenes private tour in these very famous museums with meaningful commentary by exceptional specialists. All of this while sitting in the comfort of my home. Included is a sampling of how exhibitions of this magnitude are prepared, planned, and discussed. I do hope there will be more episodes in this series.
