How do artists live; what inspires them; why do some works deeply affect us? We look at how art of the past inspired Ghislaine; how a hand-print on a cave wall to paintings by Bonnard or Matisse can move us to joy, knowledge or tears. David Hockney, on Monet is quoted as saying “art makes me see” and that his eyes had been opened “to the beauty of a shadow on a leaf”.
