A Very British Renaissance 2 - The Elizabethan Code (2014)

"Art historian Dr James Fox continues his exploration of a Renaissance that he believes was as rich and as significant in Britain as it was in Italy and Europe. He tells the story of the painters, sculptors, poets, playwrights, composers, inventors, craftsmen and scientists who revolutionised the way we saw the world.

"In this episode, he explores the Elizabethans' love of secrecy, codes and complexity, and the cultural revolution sparked by an age of discovery and exploration."

Northern Renaissance - 2. The Birth of the Artist

I have been posting the first episodes of a number of documentary series. In this instance, I am specifically posting the next, i.e. episode two. So much about Albrecht Durer; I had no idea.

"Joseph Leo Koerner argues that the Renaissance in Northern Europe - more so than its Italian counterpart - laid the foundations of modern art. He assesses the career of German painter Albrecht Durer, who harnessed the new medium of printing to become the first world-famous artist."

The English Civil War - 1. Blood On Our Hands (2005)

"The English Civil War is one of the darkest moments of English history. When Parliament published England's first newspaper advertising their complaints against Charles I, the effect on men and women who had hitherto known nothing of the affairs of government was seismic. The war tore families apart, cut down a generation in its own back yard, and left relatively more people dead than World War I. Everyday we see wars and disputes fought out in print. This is where it started."

Hearthstone

"Another thousand-year-old Viking colony might have been found on the island of Newfoundland, Canada."

The excavation of the stone, once used in iron working, on Newfoundland took place a hundred miles south of the only known Viking site located in North America. This proposes that Vikings may have traveled much farther into the continent than previously thought.

A team of archaeologists have been unearthing the newly-found location at Point Rosee, a narrow, windswept peninsula on the most western part of the island.

Digital Atlas of the Roman Empire

"In DARE, ancient sites are organized as places and buildings (subsites), each with a distinct place type and location. The buildings are not rendered on the base map because of their close proximity to the places they belong to, but are instead available as thematic overlays (e.g. amphitheaters, theaters, temples etc. respectively). Meta data about places and buildings are available next to the map."

Salvador Dali - Christ of Saint John of the Cross by ourplanet03

"Do you believe in God?"
"I believe in God but I have no faith."
"Ahh..."
"Maths and science have proved that God must exist but I don't believe it. It's terrible, I get closer and closer but I still don't believe."
"Would you like to believe?"
"Of course. Everything would be resolved. Above all, the problem of death because the idea of death makes me tremble."

The Private Life of a Masterpiece - Series 6, Episode 21:

"One of the great traditions of European religious painting is to imagine events of the Bible taking place in your own hometown, that these are events that happen regularly in your place and Dali has stayed true to that. This is the local crucifixion which every great crucifixion has to be."

Northern Renaissance - 1. The Supreme Art

"Series in which Joseph Leo Koerner argues that the Renaissance in Northern Europe - more so than its Italian counterpart - laid the foundations of modern art. In the early 15th century, the remarkable oil paintings of Flemish artist Jan Van Eyck transformed a lowly craft into the supreme art and began an image revolution that would change art forever."

The analysis of the Arnolfini Portrait offered after the 48 minute mark is astonishing. It is a remarkable thing to realize once again I've been looking at something for more than thirty years and never seen it until now.

Terry Pratchett - Back in Black (2017)

"When the writer Sir Terry Pratchett died in 2015, he was working on one last story - his own. But Terry's Alzheimer's meant he never got to finish it.

"This poignant and humorous film starring Paul Kaye as Terry finally tells the story of this hugely popular author, creator of Discworld, whose books have sold over 85 million copies worldwide. Back in Black reveals Terry's road to success was not always easy, from his troubled schooldays to being dismissed by literary critics, to his battle with Alzheimer's. But knighted by the Queen, adored by millions of fans and with a legacy of 41 much-loved novels - Terry Pratchett is still having the last laugh."

Jakuchu: The Divine Colors (2016)

"My paintings will be understood 1000 years from now". Japanese painter Ito Jakuchu (1716-1800) left these mysterious words along with his many paintings. These prophetic words are coming true with recent finds using the latest technology to better understand the artist's creative process, and his singular style in composition and design. Observe in pristine images the remarkably fine lines of Jakuchu (0.1mm!), and find out the messages hidden in the paintings of "the man with the hand of god."
