The Art of Gothic | BBC Select

Creator channel

In this BBC Select documentary, art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon explores Gothic art and architecture. Discover how 19th-century architects and artists, disillusioned with modernity, drew inspiration from Britain's medieval past to create iconic works and buildings.

The video covers Gothic's dual meanings from the Italian Renaissance to its later revival. Graham-Dixon examines Gothic art's relation to the Protestant Reformation, the rise of Gothic literature, and how these art forms reflect the era's darker aspects, such as industrialization and scientific advances like Frankenstein.
