In the 1600s and 1700s, the art of "divine" kings and popes-and of revolutionaries and Reformers-tells the story of a Europe in transition. In the Catholic south, Baroque bubbled over with fanciful decoration and exuberant emotion. In the Protestant north, art was more sober and austere. And in France, the excesses of godlike kings gave way to revolution, Napoleon, and cerebral Neoclassicism.

RICK STEVES ART OF EUROPE is the culmination of Rick showcasing Europe's great art and architecture on public television for three decades.
This ambitious, six-part sweep through the span of European art history weaves the greatest masterpieces into a fascinating story that's both entertaining and inspiring.
Climbing deep into prehistoric tombs on remote Scottish isles, summiting Michelangelo's magnificent dome at the Vatican, waltzing through glittering French palaces, and pondering the genius of Picasso and Van Gogh, Rick does for art what he does for travel - makes it fun and accessible.
