Former BBC art editor Will Gompertz examines a diverse selection of paintings and sculpture to explain aspects of the art that most people overlook. He says we get more from both art and life when we approach what we encounter more consciously and with more curiosity. This richly detailed art lesson is delivered by British narrator Matt Addis in a relaxed and highly inviting performance. With genuine wonder and a touch of irony, his friendly performance softens the formality we associate with British accents and esoteric subject matter like this. Using the author's priceless insights about art to enhance people's experience of life works well as a concept, and Addis's laid- back performance also makes it a fun listening experience.
