Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de A Very British Renaissance

S01E01 The Renaissance Arrives 21/03/2014 Now, in a new series for BBC Two, Dr James Fox looks back at a forgotten British Renaissance, celebrating an age that saw Britain shed its medieval shackles and embrace a world of cutting-edge art, literature, architecture and science. Across three episodes, James reveals the painters, sculptors, poets, thinkers and figures who, he argues, brought a bold and beautiful artistic movement to our shores between the 1500s to the start of the English civil war. In the opening episode, James explores how the Renaissance arrived, with a handful of influential European artists bringing ideas from the continent in the early 16th century - from the inspiration of Torrigiano, who fled Florence after a fist fight with Michelangelo, to Holbein and his influence on painter John Bettes - thought to be the first English Renaissance-trained artist. Although impossible without this foreign stimulus, this renaissance quickly became quintessentially British - and it was gaining momentum
S01E02 The Elizabethan Code 28/03/2014 In this episode, he explores the Elizabethans' love of secrecy, codes and complexity, and the cultural revolution sparked by an age of discovery and exploration.
S01E03 Whose Renaissance? 04/04/2014 Dr James Fox explores how the tension between two cultures - one courtly, classical and European and the other homegrown, innovative and vital - contributed to England's descent into civil war in the mid-17th century. Concluding episode of the programme celebrating an age that saw Britain embrace a world of cutting-edge art, literature, architecture and science.
