Acorn Media asked me to review "This is Civilization" I jumped at the chance!
This DVD series debuts on June 19th, 2012.
Your host Matthew Collings travels the world to bring a unique view linking the impact of civilization and the way it is defined on art movements through history.
Art and history my 2 favorite subjects!
I just watched this 4 part series this weekend with my history loving daughter. We are both taking a "History of Ancient Civilizations" course right now. So we were very curious about this series.
We both enjoyed this series.
Some highlights include:
- religious ideals and their impact on art including ancient Egypt, Greek mythology, and Christianity.
- comparison between Jacques-Louis David and Francisco Goya.
- and a discussion of John Ruskin's thoughts on urbanization and the art of J.M.W. Turner.
This series is a 2 volume DVD boxed set. 4 episodes, 192 min. SRP:$39.99.
