As much as we know the genius of the great artists of the past, often when we see a masterpiece, we find it difficult to connect with it and grasp its greatness. Ossian Ward directly confronts this communicative gap and provides us with some of the keys and parameters with which to look at the paintings of the old masters again.
The British critic takes various concepts that have been a constant in the history of art —such as paradox, beauty or horror— and turns them into the common thread that connects our interpretative capacity with the best works in the history of painting. A captivating immersive experience that invites us not only to learn about the spectacular theatricality of El Bosco or the harmony and simplicity of Paul Cézanne, but to truly apprehend them.
