Below is a link to a documentary on the Northern Renaissance presented by the BBC. Each episode is presented in four 15 minute blocks with a total of 3 episodes.
The Series was first broadcast 15 Nov 2007.In the series Joseph Leo Koerner argues that the Renaissance in Northern Europe – more so than its Italian counterpart – laid the foundations of modern art. In the early 15th century, the remarkable oil paintings of Flemish artist Jan Van Eyck transformed a lowly craft into the supreme art and began an image revolution that would change art forever.
