Waldemar Challenges The Renaissance Origins | The Renaissance Unchained (Full Series) | Perspective

Over four episodes, Waldemar Januszczak re-evaluates the view of art in the Renaissance. The art critic challenges the traditional opinion of the period by introducing new concepts and artwork. Januszczak begins by rebuffing the idea that Renaissance art originated in Italy and goes on to discuss the work of artists in the lands of Flanders and Germany, such as Van Eyck, Memling, Durer, Riemenschneider and Cranach. The work of renowned Renaissance artists is also explored from a different stance, discussing pieces by Michelangelo, da Vinci and Botticelli.
