Can you tell a Mondrian from a Monet? A Basquiat from a Botticelli ?
Esteemed art historian Susie Hodge and leading brain trainer Dr Gareth Moore introduce you to 36 iconic pieces of art – including Botticelli's Primavera, Van Gogh's The Starry Night and Picasso's Guernica. For each painting, they reveal fascinating facts about the work and artist (and give clues on what to look for), before challenging you to decipher the art for yourself through carefully crafted questions. Look at art in new ways as you:
- Decode the hieroglyphs from the Book of the Dead
- Find new symbols in The Arnolfini Portrait
- Solve riddles based on The Garden of Earthly Delights
- Navigate M.C. Escher's gravity-defying staircases
- Reassemble the Mondrian
