Season 1
1. Gods, Myths and Oil Paintings

2. Whips, Deaths and Madonnas

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.

3. Silk, Sex and Sin

Waldemar focuses on Venice and its extraordinary impact on art history. He celebrates color, drama and vitality by looking at the delicate colors of Bellini, the mystery of Giorgione, the splendour of Titian, the drama and chaos of Tintoretto and the glorious banquets of Veronese.

4. Hell, Snakes and Giants

In the final episode Waldemar looks at the surprising climax of the Renaissance as it spiralled into madness and distortion. This was a period full of war, confusion and darkness, which was captured perfectly in the art of Leonardo, Bosch, Arcimboldo, Palissy, the Italian Mannerists and El Greco.
