09:15
Be inspired by 'The Titian Experience'. In the summer of 2012, festival-goers across the country were invited to immerse themselves in Titian's masterpiece 'Diana and Callisto' via the novelty of a mobile cinema. The festival was part of the National Gallery's 'Metamorphosis: Titian 2012', a multi-faceted experience celebrating British creativity across the arts. The project brought together a group of specially commissioned works responding to three of Titian's paintings -- 'Diana and Actaeon', 'The Death of Actaeon' and the recently acquired 'Diana and Callisto' -- which depict stories from Ovid's epic poem 'Metamorphoses'. 'Metamorphosis: Titian 2012' was exhibited as part of the Cultural Olympiad's London 2012 Festival.

Episode 7 | Baptism | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading | National Gallery, London
 
11:44
John the Baptist earns his name from his baptism of Christ on the banks of the River Jordan. This act marks the beginning of Christ's ministry, when he begins to travel, preach and perform miracles, and later becomes a key ritual in the entry of the faithful into the Church. In this episode art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash visit Salisbury Cathedral and the spectacular font designed by William Pye to discuss the significance and symbolism of baptism, before returning to the National Gallery to see Adam Elsheimer's, 'The Baptism of Christ', 1599 and the great Italian Renaissance masterpiece by Piero della Francesca, 'The Baptism of Christ', 1450s. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.

Episode 6  |  Preaching   |  Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading
 
09:17
John the Baptist returns from the wilderness to begin preaching in Jerusalem. His message is 'Prepare ye the way of the Lord'. Art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash look at National Gallery masterpieces by Raphael, Mola and Parmigianino to discover how artists have translated the Baptist's spoken word into paint and how his most recognisable gesture - the pointing finger - communicates his message. In this episode we discuss Raphael's 'Saint John the Baptist Preaching', 1505, Pier Francesco Mola's 'Saint John the Baptist preaching in the Wilderness', about 1640 and Parmigianino's monumental 'The Madonna and Child with Saints John the Baptist and Jerome', 1526-7.

Lucrezia Walker | Van Gogh: Sunflowers, Letters & Life | The National Gallery, London
 
53:30
In August 1888 Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo of his plan to paint sunflowers in a dozen panels. He planned the series as 'a symphony in blue and yellow'. Lucrezia Walker, Freelance Lecturer at the National Gallery, talks about the significance of the 'Sunflower' series in exploring Van Gogh as an artist. The lecture, 'Van Gogh: Sunflowers, Letters & Life' was held as part of the Gallery's 2014 display 'The Sunflowers', which witnessed the rare reunion of two of Van Gogh's famous 'Sunflower' masterpieces.

John David Rhodes | Entering the Picture | Building the Picture
 
04:20
How do Italian renaissance painters and Hollywood film directors use architecture to get us to 'enter the picture'? Taking Antonello da Messina's 'Saint Jerome in his Study,' about 1475, and the films of 1950s director Douglas Sirk as examples, film historian John David Rhodes reveals how both use the same devices to stage entrances, fracture time across space and make us long to enter the detailed worlds they create. This film is one of five giving contemporary perspectives on the National Gallery exhibition 'Building the Picture: Architecture in Italian Renaissance Painting' (30 April - 21 September 2014).

Episode 10 | Power and Judgment | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading
 
13:57
John the Baptist's proclamations on justice meant that he was often adopted by rulers as a patron saint and role model. According to some traditions John descended to the underworld after his death to prepare the souls for the Last Judgment, and so artists often represent him in scenes of the Harrowing of Hell. In this final episode art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash visit Westminster Abbey to discover how the 14th century English king, Richard II, had a particular devotion to the saint before returning to the National Gallery to see how this was expressed in one of the greatest treasures of the collection, 'The Wilton Diptych', about 1395-9. At Westminster Abbey we see the anonymous 'English Portrait of Richard II', about 1390 and at the National Gallery Giovanni dal Ponte's 'Ascension of Saint John the Evangelist Altarpiece', about 1420-4? and 'The Wilton Diptych', about 1395-9. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.

Episode 3 | Birth and Naming | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading
 
08:17
There are several miracles surrounding the birth and naming of John the Baptist and in these his father Zacharias, plays an important role. In this episode art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash reveal how this story was told in art and explain the uses to which small narrative scenes known as predella panels were put to in 14th and 15th century Italian Renaissance altarpieces. We go behind the scenes at the National Gallery to examine Niccolò di Pietro Gerini's 'Baptism Altarpiece', 1387 and into the Sainsbury Wing to admire Giovanni di Paolo's 'The Birth of Saint John the Baptist: Predella Panel', 1454. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.

Episode 8 | Martyrdom | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading | National Gallery, London
 
11:43
John the Baptist is the only figure in the New Testament to die before Jesus Christ; his beheading is one of the most dramatic scenes represented in the history of art. Art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash visit St. John's Co-Cathedral in Malta to see one of the most famous representations of the Baptist's martyrdom, Caravaggio's altarpiece for the Knights of Malta. They discuss the events leading up to his beheading and the increasing prominence of Salome in depictions of the Baptist's final moments. In this episode we see Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's 'The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist', 1608 in St. John's Co-Cathedral and return to the National Gallery to see Pierre-Cécile Puvis de Chavanne's theatrical 'The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist', 1869. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.

Episode 5 | Wilderness | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading | National Gallery, London
 
07:34
John the Baptist's role throughout his life was to prepare the way for Christ's ministry on earth, that is, the travelling, teaching and preaching Christ would begin after his baptism by John. To prepare himself for this great task, the young John the Baptist left the city of Jerusalem for the wilderness. Alone and reliant on nature, he becomes the emaciated, tousle-haired figure so often depicted in art. In this episode art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash take a close look at an Italian Renaissance predella panel by Giovanni di Paolo, 'Saint John the Baptist retiring to the Desert', 1454 and pay a visit behind the scenes to see an anonymous Italian artist's depiction of 'Saint John the Baptist' in the wilderness of about 1540-60 and Moretto da Brescia's 'Christ blessing Saint John the Baptist', probably 1640-60. 'John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading' is a series of 10 films sharing the highlights of the collaborative MA course taught by Dr Jennifer Sliwka, Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery and Professor Ben Quash, Director of the Centre for Arts and the Sacred, King's College London.

Episode 2 | Visitation | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading | National Gallery, London
 
09:16
Like Christ, John the Baptist was also miraculously conceived. His elderly mother Elizabeth was also a kinswoman of the Virgin Mary. In this episode, art historian Jennifer Sliwka and theologian Ben Quash reveal the significance of the meeting of the two pregnant women and their unborn children - an event known as 'The Visitation' - and its commemoration in church liturgy, music and art. In this episode we visit King's College Chapel to hear the choir sing the 'Magnificat' before returning to the National Gallery to see Workshop of the Master of 1518's 'The Visitation of the Virgin to Saint Elizabeth', about 1515 and Francesco Zaganelli's 'The Baptism of Christ', 1514.

Episode 4 | Infancy | Saint John the Baptist: From Birth to Beheading | National Gallery, London
 
10:02
The Bible reveals very little about the childhood of John the Baptist. In the 14th century however, a Dominican friar called Domenico Cavalca wrote a biography of the saint that filled in the gaps. This work's popularity inspired Italian Renaissance artists to represent new episodes from his life and to show the infant Baptist in the company of the Christ Child.
