"BAAM! ART IN SPINACH" - FOR EVERYONE FROM 9 YEARS OLD.

"Baam! Art in spinach"We love not only the title, but also everything in this program proposed by France TV. Playful and very clever, Baam! presents in 5 minutes a major painting of art history. It connects it to its historical context and to an artistic current. It's ultra lively and very documented. We advise adults to watch too, just to shine at your next dinners (post confinement!)
The topics covered are very varied:

  • Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper
  • Manet and his painting "The Balcony"...
  • the Sistine Madonna by Rafaello Sanzio
  • the portraits of Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun
  • Grant Wood Pioneers
  • etc...
