Renowned art critic and television presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon introduces preview clips of a new BBC Four documentary on the British artist David Bomberg.  Bomberg was a reclusive figure who created some of the most memorable paintings of the first half of the 20th century. He was a pioneer of the English movement known as Vorticism and developed ways to express the spiritual aspirations of a generation scarred by war. The documentary is one of a new series presented by Graham-Dixon. The Artists of War documentaries also include broadcasts on Walter Sickert and Paul Nash. Graham-Dixon will take questions about the documentary and there will be discussion of the clips, with an opportunity to comment on the final format of the film.

Graham-Dixon is a leading arts critic. He has presented many television programmes on art and artists including the acclaimed BBC programmes, A History of British Art; Renaissance; and Art of Eternity. He has a column on art in the Sunday Telegraph and is author of many acclaimed books on subjects ranging from medieval painting and sculpture to modern art.

This event will last one hour 15 minutes.

Presented by BBC Four
