Description
This award-winning series reveals the full and fascinating stories behind famous works of art. It describes not just how they came to be created, but also how they influenced others and came to have a life of their own in the modern world.

This episode begins by revealing the techniques used by Michelangelo to sculpt the human body so accurately and on so vast a scale in his masterpiece, David. Edgar Degas broke every rule in the book when sculpting The Little Dancer Aged 14; this program also tells the poignant life story of the artist's model. The final segment re-creates the studio in which Auguste Rodin developed The Kiss and includes archival footage of the sculpture wrapped in string by artist Cornelia Parker.
