Part of the "This Is Civilization" series. The idea of using art to explore the human condition rather than the divine was a significant departure from the predominantly religious artwork that preceded this secular revelation. Matthew Collings seeks the first glimmerings of humanist art in the Italian Renaissance, particularly in the works of Giotto and Leonardo da Vinci. Also contrasts two 18th-century artists who, in diametrically opposed ways, expressed this new sense of human potential, whether noble or monstrous: Jacques-Louis David and Francisco Goya. NOTE: Includes some graphic nude images. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
