"Classicism: In a trip to Paris' Louvre museum Justine Shapiro also admires Da Vinci's work, the famous Mona Lisa. In neighbouring Belgium Katy Haswell marvels at the huge oil on canvas paintings in Ruben's house and studio. Secrets behind the creation of Rembrandt's Night Watch in Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum are revealed to Jonathan Atherton, while in Madrid Adela Ucar observes the Spanish Golden age in paintings by Velazquez and Goya. We end our journey back in Tuscany at the immense Uffizi Gallery home to a staggering number of the world's classic masterpieces. Modernism: Adela Ucar learns about the paintings of Edouard Manet in Paris' Musee d'Orsay while Christina Chang travels to Arles in southern France, to a former home of Vincent Van Gogh, the world's most famous post impressionist. In Spain Megan McCormick heads the artistic hub of Barcelona, and learns about influential modernists Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro and the surrealist, Salvador Dali. We end our modernist showcase in up and coming art hot spots around the globe, such as Beijing and Indonesia's capital Jakarta.
