Baroque!: From St Peter's To St Paul's BBC 4 at 9:00pm

Waldemar joins the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela - the Via de la Plata - starting in Seville, the birthplace of Velazquez, and the setting of Rossini's Barber Of Seville and Mozart's Marriage Of Figaro. He also charts the journey of Spanish Baroque exported from as far afield as Peru and Latin America.

I watched last night program where Waldemar followed the the Via de la Plata starting in Seville. He reviewed Velazquez most famous paintings and then went on to Fuente de Cantos and talked about Zurbaran. He then jumped to Santiago and discussed the cathedral. The journey continued to Belgium (Rubens) and Holland (Rembrant and Vermeer) before ending up in Peru and Latin America.

Very enjoyable but the Camino linking was forced and I had never considered Rembrant and Vermeer to be Baroque painters
