Episode 1: Giotto

Summary

Tim Marlow presents the life and work of the Western world's most gifted artists, beginning with Giotto di Bondone, the son of a Tuscan shepherd. Born in 1267, Giotto began his apprenticeship at the age of 12, and with his naturalistic treatment of medieval Christian iconography, was recognised as the first in a line of great painters and architects who contributed to the Italian Renaissance.
