Back by popular demand, world-leading art expert Will Gompertz takes us into the minds of artists – from contemporary stars to old masters – to show us how to look and experience the world with their heightened powers of perception. How can Rembrandt help us see ourselves? How can David Hockney help us to see nature? And how can Frida Kahlo help us see through pain?
