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. When people first saw Paul Cezanne's paintings, they criticised, rejected and even laughed at him! He went on to change the art world forever. His pictures of apples and mountains paved the way for a new approach to painting. Today he's widely celebrated as the 'father' of modern art, inspiring artists as diverse as Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns.
