Great Art Explained, in 15 minutes
I'm James Payne, a curator, gallerist and a passionate art lover. I am on a mission to demystify the art world and discover the stories behind the world’s greatest paintings and sculptures. Each episode will focus on one piece of art and break it down, using clear and concise language free of 'art-speak'
Sometimes the art work is a springboard for other wider issues I would like to explore, and sometimes it is a simple exploration of techniques and meaning. For me, setting the works in context helps us appreciate them more
By sticking to fifteen minutes, I want to make sure I keep the viewer engaged and interested. My videos cover art from all cultures and classifications. In-depth research and a love for the perfect visual, will hopefully bring a new way of seeing familiar works
