I am so glad to see that the great Professor Witcombe is still up to his internet antics! These are really great and they remind me of the DaVinci Code class from two years ago. I look forward to the next one!

Professor Witcombe's vidoes combined with his essays are invaluable tools for the beginning art historian, or for someone, like me, who has become rusty around the edges and would like a refresher course.

Wonderfully informative and at the same time funny and amusing. A real invitation to appreciating art!
