In this three-part series, art critic Waldemar Januszczak takes us on a journey to explore the Baroque tradition in many of its key locations. Starting in Italy and following the spread of the wildfire across Europe and beyond, Januszczak shows us best examples of Baroque to be found, and tells the best stories behind those works. Part One begins at St.Peter’s in Rome and details the birth of the Baroque tradition as it burst forth in Italy. Part Two follows Baroque to its dark heart in Spain, focusing on the route of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, and featuring star painters Velasquez, Caravaggio, and Zurburan. We then follow on through Belgium and Holland to discover such celebrities as Rubens and Vermeer. Part Three explores the English Baroque tradition which finds its climax through Christopher Wren and the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral. Winner Best Arts Documentary, RTS Awards 2010.
