In addition to pioneering literature at the turn of the century, art went through ground-breaking changes as well.
In Sickert vs Sargent, celebrated art critic Waldemar Januzczack looks at the work of Walter Sickert and John Sargent - both masters of their time.
Sickert famously announced "any fool can paint, drawing is the thing". Januzczack steps into the fray, comparing the works of the two artists.
Focusing on some of the most beautiful and alarming paintings ever made in this country "pictures of aristocrats and prostitutes, coronations and killings, opera houses and music halls" the programme evokes the long-lost atmosphere of Edwardian London.

Walter Richard Sickert (May 31, 1860 in Munich, Germany – January 22, 1942 in Bath, England) was an English Impressionist painter. Sickert was a cosmopolitan and eccentric who favoured ordinary people and urban scenes as his subjects.
John Singer Sargent (January 12, 1856 – April 14, 1925) was the most successful portrait painter of his era, as well as a gifted landscape painter and watercolorist. Sargent was born in Florence, Italy to American parents. He studied in Italy and Germany, and then in Paris under Emile Auguste Carolus-Duran.
