Series Masterpiece on Saturday
Summary "This program looks at the art that was created in 1517 the year marking the birth of the modern world. In the same year, Martin Luther sparks the European Reformation, whilst sophisticated cultures elsewhere across the globe give expression to their own religious, secular and artistic visions through painting, sculpting, music and writing. In South America, the stunning and improbable architecture of Machu Picchu, in Mexico the glorious Aztec civilisation, and in France an aging Leonardo da Vinci completes the Mona Lisa, and Josquin des Prez composes music in sublime polyphony. At the same time in Italy, Baldesar Castiglione adds the finishing touches to The Courtier, the most influential book written during the Renaissance, whilst in Africa, the Benin Culture is beginning to cast in bronze their exquisite portrait heads. In Japan, Kyoto-based artist, Soami creates and refines in gravel, moss and stones his elegant Zen gardens. (From Canada, in English) WS "--from website
