    Inspiring Artists tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, not only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. It explores their life and times through significant pieces of their art, looking at the work in terms of its context, from conflict (Goya), to festivities (Bruegel) to personal struggle (Van Gogh). Each work is also considered in terms of its style, technique and artistic innovation. Leonardo da Vinci was a brilliant inventor, engineer, scientist and architect, but he is most famous for being an artist. His fascination and skill in representing the world around him made him a celebrity during his lifetime and an inspiration to many artists both then and now, from Raphael to Andy Warhol.
