A free education in art history, part 1 - Michelangelo

At the moment I'm big on the Italian Renaissance artists. In order to sound a little bit more like I know what I'm talking about I'm checking out some documentaries on youtube. I intend on grouping these videos in a separate page, for easy access.

Here's a BBC documentary on Michelangelo.

And here's another one, focusing on the sculpture David.

And here's a third, named The Divine Michelangelo.

All three take a different approach to the subject, and are in my opinion well worth watching.

There's also a movie named The Agony and the Ecstacy, but it's not on Youtube. The trailer, however, is.
