The Loves Of The Artists

Hay Festival 2013, 

A sweeping, epic history of the Renaissance artists, seen through the lens of something that perhaps occupied their thoughts and influenced their art the most…sex. Taking Donatello’s provocative reinvention of the nude as his starting point, Jones shows how the story of the Renaissance is the story of a sexual revolution. Chaired by Clemency Burton-Hill.
