Brian Sewell Art Critic

Brian Sewell (1931-2015), who has died aged 84, was for many years the best-known, most outspoken and most widely read art critic in Britain. His column in the Evening Standard was loved by London’s strap-hangers, even when they knew nothing about the artists he was laying into. In recent times, he wrote with equal fury on a vast range of other subjects, particularly the postures of political leaders, which eventually won him the Orwell prize for political writing.…..The Guardian

Van Gogh Documentaries

van gogh documentaries
It’s a sure bet to ask for certain thing and Vincent Van Gogh is sure to turn up in most discussions of art. Vince, or as Charles Bukowski calls him Van and his brother Theo are two icons of art as if they set the stage and planned it all. The whole story has become a pleasant fairy tale story of pain and searching for the torch of greatness. Well deserved but hardly rewarded for each of the brothers.
Documentary is a pleasant way to present our artists and we hope you like them. Book is another form and way of presenting biographies and biography of famous artists is another tool to understanding the art. Vincent, Vincent, Theo, Gaunguin are all part of the mystique, cutting the ear off, presenting it, the psychiatrist, the sunflowers, the starry starry night. Vincent Van Gogh is our famous artist our mystery man, our story.
