Waldemar Januszczak

This irrepressible BBC presenter explores art history as story — and finds meaning and connections in everything. A man who explains in detail why the Impressionists weren’t sweet chocolate-box cliches. . . but revolutionary. 

Waldemar’s fascinating explorations of the Baroque, Rococo, The Impressionists and the not-so-dark-at-all-Dark Ages are in-depth and compelling. From shows exploring Islamic Art to the Manet and Gaugin you thought you knew but didn’t, he shares an exciting range of art history with humor, no nonsense and sharp insight. He’s a masterful storyteller, mind-blowing and eye-opening.

Is offering their new exhibition of Michel Delgado’s paintings online, available for view and purchase at
