- Series Description
If the gobble-de-jargon of art criticism turns you off - If you know what you like but t say so in a very soft voice - then here’s a TV series for you. Remember the commercial on TV for Heinz’ Great American Soups - with tap-dancing and a chorus line and hydraulic soup cans? That’s Art? Have you ever seen a painting of a pipe, and it says on it French, “This is not a pipe”? That’s Magritte. And that’s art.
It’s all on Eye to Eye - a fast-moving, pop-up compendium of everything you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about art. You’ll find out about the most successful art forger in history. And learn a little bit about counterfeiting. And quilts. And Dossena’s Hoax. And find out if maybe that stuff in your grandmother’s attic is worth a lot or a little. Know what you’ll end up with? The beautiful knowledge that art is all around you. And every day you’ll see and make up your mind. And really know what you like. And feel happy about it. Watch Eye To Eye. Series release date: 1971
