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.

Among these Christmas masterpieces, Pieter Bruegel's The Census at Bethlehem has been interpreted as an attack on Spanish repression and may have been one of the works he instructed his wife to destroy after his death. Behind Jan van Eyck's The Annunciation, packed with complex and extraordinary imagery, lies a more complicated story worthy of a spy novel. And Paul Gauguin's God's Child raised eyebrows for depicting a partially naked Mary in a Nativity scene as if she had really gone through the painful experience of labor.
