The Art of Spain

Up on the bbc i player for another six days I highly recommend this documentary on the age of Phillip II in art and architecture. This episode is called The Dark Heart and features El Greco and Velasquez. Duration: 60 minutes
Andrew Graham-Dixon explores Spain's art history. He discovers how a brutal empire brought a Golden Age of art of the 16th and 17th centuries.
