Modern Masters

Salvador Dali – Celebrated surrealist artist, featured in the BBC series; Modern Masters

The BBC do great history, science and art documentaries and I have just discovered a small series called ‘Modern Masters’ from acouple of years ago that I encourage everyone to watch, I found it really inspiring yet quite easy going. The series covers four famous modern artists: Pablo picasso, Henri matisse, Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol, with one, one hour episode dedicated to each artist. The presenter, young art critic  Alastair Sooke investigates the artist’s contrubution to our society today and follows their path across Europe and the US. I have posted the video links below, Enjoy!
