This January, ITV will show Great Art, a five-part series exploring the life and work of the world’s most celebrated artists. Premiering on ITV on January 4th 2018 (Just after News at 10), the weekly series will offer an in-depth look at iconic artists including Canaletto, the Impressionists, Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Vermeer. The series was produced by Seventh Art Productions adapted from full-length feature films originally released in cinemas under EXHIBITION ON SCREEN.
Each 50-minute episode will reveal unique insights into the life of the artists, from exploring the places they lived and worked to uncovering their formative relationships through private letters. Great Art will also provide privileged access to the artists’ masterpieces, going behind-the-scenes at the world’s leading museums. Great Art is introduced by curator and broadcaster Tim Marlow, Artistic Director of The Royal Academy of Arts, and features a host of eminent art experts, providing the perfect guides to history’s artistic greats.
“I am delighted to be introducing this series of excellent films for ITV. The
appetite for the arts in this country goes from strength to strength and I know ITV’s
Great Art will find a wide and appreciative audience.”
The series is commissioned for ITV by Jo Clinton-Davis, Controller of Factual and Sue Murphy, Head of Factual Entertainment. More Info: www.itv.com
