The Power of Art

How does art reflect the experience of the artist? We’ll spend this hour with Columbia University Professor of Art History and History, Simon Schama. Schama’s new book “The Power of Art” (Ecco, 2006) examines important turning points in the lives of eight great artists – Caravaggio, Bernini, Rembrandt, David, Turner, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Rothko.
