A 2006 Arts Documentary by The National Gallery hosted by Louise Govier.
The early Renaissance Italian painters transformed the ways in which they depicted their subject matter, developing more naturalistic representations of people and places. How did later generations of artists use and expand those techniques, and to what ends?
This film looks at the aims and ideals of both painters and patrons in late fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century Italy. It examines the kinds of subject matter being depicted, and themes or interests associated with specific artistic centres such as Florence, Rome and Venice.
A 2005 Arts Documentary by The National Gallery hosted by Louise Govier.
In the late-thirteenth century, the highly patterned and stylised form of painting that dominated the Middle Ages began to give way to a much more naturalistic kind of art. The way art looked changed dramatically and this film questions why it happened at this particular point and how artists learned to paint with completely new approaches. The National Gallery's collection presents a unique opportunity to investigate the development of early Italian Renaissance painting.
In this film Louise Govier from the National Gallery introduces this extraordinary period of art history through works by artists including Cimabue, Masaccio, Duccio and Piero della Francesca, and explores the cities of Florence and Siena, which are central to an understanding of the period.
A 2016 BBC Arts Documentary hosted by Samantha Roddick.
Samantha Roddick explores the enduring appeal of Botticelli's masterpiece The Birth of Venus, one of the most celebrated paintings in western art. A joyous celebration of female sexuality, its journey to worldwide fame was far from straightforward and it lay in obscurity for centuries.
Artist and entrepreneur Sam explains why Botticelli's nude was so revolutionary, and explores its impact on contemporary culture with artists such as Terry Gilliam, who memorably reinvented Venus for his Monty Python's Flying Circus animations.
Sorry for the lack of uploads lately, (I'll get back to it soon, I promise), been a bit black-pilled recently, so I've tuned out of all news, and instead I've been studying my family tree, learning about our European culture and heritage, and studying the spiritual side of our ancestors. (No, I've not turned in to a bible thumper). I recently came across this documentary by a German broadcaster on JewTube, and it's pretty interesting, so thought I'd share it here. It offers a glimpse in to the renaissance period in Europe, mainly Italy. Our people have had a lot of highs and lows throughout the millennia, but this has to be one of our greatest periods.
Leonardo's lifetime, (the Jew media try to paint him as an effeminate faggot, but for better or worse, he was actually designing intricate weapons of war), coincided with the discovery of America by Columbus. When our people were creating beautiful structures, painting masterpieces and making scientific breakthroughs, the rest of the world must have been a very dark place to live. No matter your views on Christianity, if this documentary doesn't make you want to fight to preserve our people and our culture, then I doubt anything will.
Leonardo's famous painting "The Last Supper" hides a secret: only 20 percent of the original work is still visible.
In the style of a thriller, the documentary attempts to reconstruct what it originally looked like. Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of the Renaissance Man. May 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of his death. The artist created world-famous works such as the fresco "The Last Supper" - perhaps the most famous. It is still in its original setting, on the wall of the dining room of the former Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. The painting, which is 4.60 meters high and 8.80 meters wide, has been undergoing restoration for the last 19 years. But the restorers now know that only 20 percent of the original is visible today. So what did something that is the focus of so many legends originally look like? Our investigation also takes us to the small Belgian abbey of Tongerlo, where a mysterious copy of da Vinci's work has been discovered. It is a painting on canvas that could have been commissioned from da Vinci’s workshop by the French King Louis XII. It has perhaps brought the researchers a step closer to the truth. _______

A 2010 BBC Arts Documentary series written and presented by Matthew Collings.
Matthew Collings concludes the series by looking at the invention of Renaissance painting. The Baptism of Christ by Italian master Piero Della Francesca showed the household names of the High Renaissance how to use the big new trick of Renaissance painting - illusionism and perspective. Without him their achievements would have been impossible, but change came so rapidly in the Renaissance that the qualities that made Piero famous in his own time quickly went out of fashion.
The Baptism was bought for the National Gallery in 1861 and later Cezanne and Picasso saw him as the real deal: the authentic, honest Renaissance, a model for modern painting. Now he is so in tune with secular modern taste that a tourist trail links his work in the beautiful hills of Umbria, Tuscany, and a few galleries around the world who own a precious panel by him. Collings follows his trail and hunts down the forensic detail in the highest-resolution images of paintings yet seen on television.
A 2010 BBC Arts Documentary series written and presented by Matthew Collings.
In the second programme of his series on Renaissance painting, artist and writer Matthew Collings steps into the mysterious invented world of The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, painted c.1505. Using the latest high-resolution digital technology, Matthew is able to explore this extraordinary painting in minute detail and unravel some of the arcane messages that Bosch has woven into it through his use of symbols and unsettling inversions of scale.
The Garden of Earthly Delights reflects the new way of thinking about the world that the Renaissance ushered in - ideas about free will and morality that challenged the old religious order and posed a question: perhaps heaven and hell are not places your soul might end up in, but states of being that are always inside you?
A 2010 BBC Arts Documentary series written and presented by Matthew Collings.
The series begins with an artistic investigation into one of the most radiant and beautiful images in all of art history, The Madonna of the Meadow, painted in 1505 by Raphael. Matthew deconstructs the image with the help of the very latest high-resolution digital technology, which allows him to explore the inner secrets of Raphael's painterly effects with a clarity and at a level of detail never before seen on television.
As Matthew says, it is a journey 'to the other side of an illusion', revealing how Raphael created the alluring images that were so appealing to his wealthy Renaissance clients - including the Pope - and which entranced artists for centuries after his death.
Jared Taylor of American Renaissance discusses the findings in the recently-released study, "The Color of Crime." Carefully researched and scrupulously footnoted, this report documents the shocking extent to which violent crime in America is a race problem.
Inside the Mind of Leonardo is based on the artist's private journals dating from the Italian Renaissance. With more than 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings, Da Vinci's private journals are the most comprehensive documents that chronicle the work of the world's most renowned inventor, philosopher, painter and genius. Never before has access been granted to capture these works in 3D HD format.
Using this precious collection of writings and drawings to recount Da Vinci's story in his own words, the film re-creates the mindscape and ideas of mankind's greatest polymath. In a powerful and haunting performance, actor Peter Capaldi portrays Leonardo, dramatically narrating passages and monologues from his journals. He captures the passion of Leonardo's genius, his understanding of the workings of the natural world, his insights on art and life and his inner fears and torments.
A 2011 BBC Arts Documentary hosted by Fiona Bruce.
Fiona Bruce uncovers the story of Leonardo da Vinci, who is considered by many to be one of the greatest artists who ever lived. Yet his reputation rests on only a handful of paintings - including the world's most famous painting, the Mona Lisa. Fiona travels to Florence, Milan, Paris and Warsaw to learn more about this enigmatic genius - and to New York, where she is given an exclusive preview of a sensational discovery: a new Leonardo.
A 2008 Arts, History Documentary written and presented by Andrew Graham-Dixon.
On a spectacular journey through Renaissance Italy, Andrew Graham-Dixon searches for the shadowy figure who wrote one of the most important books on art, Giorgio Vasari, author of the monumental "Lives of the Artists." And looks at some dazzling works, including masterpieces of the early Renaissance by Giotto, Masaccio and Donatello.
Giorgio Vasari was the Grandaddy of all art critics, travelling Italy in the 16th century for his definitive Lives of the Artists. Scorning medieval Gothic, he praised to the vaulted ceilings the revival of classical art and architecture. It was "a time of miracles that he named 'the Renaissance'," says Andrew Graham-Dixon, as he retraces Vasari's footsteps for this captivating two-part film.
He's an enthusiastic guide, lapsing easily into Italian conversation with the custodians of galleries and chapels who allow him a private view. From Brunelleschi's Duomo in Florence to less familiar marvels - a Donatello sculpture; Masaccio frescoes - he illustrates how rapidly ideas developed. A final treat for him - and us - is a tour of the Vasari Corridor, a rarely accessed gallery that zigzags across the Florentine rooftops.
Personal note: This is not an HD file. Although I converted it into HD, but I'm not sure if it made much difference.

Clarice Orsini, a baron's daughter and cardinal's niece, brings connections, class, and military muscle to the Medici dynasty.
In the workshops of Florence, business has never been better. Under Medici patronage, artists like Sandro Botticelli go on to redefine the Renaissance itself. For now, Botticelli's “Adoration of the Magi” confirms his position at the heart of Medici power.

Note: "Medici" is pronounced as Alexander says it, not as Michael Scott continues to pronounce it.
A 2015 BBC Artsnight series Documentary hosted by Andrew Marr.
Writer and broadcaster Andrew Marr wants to champion some great Renaissance dramatists whose stories have been neglected because they worked at the same time as William Shakespeare. Andrew believes our obsession with the Bard of Avon has fatally distorted our view of the Tudor and Jacobean period.
Andrew talks to director Sir Trevor Nunn, director of a new production of Ben Jonson's great satire Volpone, while the Artistic Director of the RSC Greg Doran talks about the master of blood and guts drama - John Ford. Andrew also explores the dramatic life and death of Christopher Marlowe, as well as seeing how these forgotten Renaissance playwrights created roles for women just as good as Lady Macbeth.
Paul Kersey goes it alone to discuss Ilhan Omar trivializing the 9/11 terror attacks. He covers conservatives' impotent response to the threat of legal immigration. He also discusses Kyle Korver, the white NBA player who says whites should feel responsible—but not guilty—for the actions of their forefathers.
I don't really want to talk about the ugliness of the world today. I really have enough of the cruelty, the wickedness and the ugliness of man. I prefer to focus on the beauty of this world and watching nature awakening in springtime. Are we all finally ready for our true Renaissance?
Je n'ai pas tellement envie de vous parler de la laideur du monde aujourd'hui. J'en ai vraiment marre de la cruauté, de la méchanceté et de la laideur de l'homme. Je préfère focaliser sur la beauté du monde et regarder la nature s'éveiller au printemps. Sommes-nous tous enfin prêt pour notre vraie Renaissance?
Jared Taylor of American Renaissance marvels at the hatred for Donald Trump that reached another new high after the mid-term elections. Liberals are determined to believe he is a “white nationalist,” and his denials only make them hate him even more. Now, governors and congressmen are said to be “white supremacists”—“emboldened,” of course, by Donald Trump. If Democrats keep calling Republicans “white supremacist” might their feverish vision come true?
This video talks about what was going on in the papacy during the rise that led to the protestant reformation. An informal talk that gives some details as a backdrop to the videos I have recently produced.
The renaissance papacy was a period of decadence and immorality in high places. It was also a reflection of the times and the people.
Martin the fifth what's the first of the Renaissance Popes and Paul the third who sat at the Council of Trent in the 1540s was the culmination.

A short clip of me & my buddy Ellery playing a song at the ladies church social in March 2018. Sorry for the dumb look on my face, I only started picking on the ukulele a few weeks before this. Also it's a social, so excuse the noise. I'd like to do a full recording of this hauntingly beautiful melody from the 16th century.
