How to Look at a Painting Documentary Series

TVNZ 7 is currently airing the art documentary series How To Look At A Painting. The series is based on the book of the same name written by Christchurch Art Gallery's Senior Curator Justin Paton. 'In the series Justin, who also presents the show, embarks on a highly visual journey of exploration across the painted world to uncover and examine the marvels and mysteries of painting.' The season (12 episodes) airs on Friday nights at 9.05pm on TVNZ7 and is definitely worth following.
