EwArt Productions Presents: Art History in Just a Minute
Actually, these podcasts go over a minute, but do not that let that stop you from watching this series. Sadly, they have not added new episodes since 2007. All the more disappointing, given how EwArt executes this series with such a lively and engaging style. With the simple graphics, it reminded me of watching PBS shows from the early nineties as a kid. The graphics themselves fare well, except in the Albrecht Durer episode, due to the Durer print The Prodigal Son coming out blurry. The host/creator Christopher L.C.E. Whitcombe narrates and gives information with zest, verve, and the occasional humor. The three episodes profile Da Vinci’s Last Supper and Mona Lisa, with Albrecht Durer’s Prodigal Son as the last episode made. All three offer great information from historical contexts (More Giorgio Vasari citations than you can imagine) to its relevance in contemporary pop culture.
