This acclaimed film brings to life two of the biggest characters in modern British art – Walter Sickert and John Singer Sargent.
Written and presented by Waldemar Januszczak, the film focuses on some of the most beautiful and alarming paintings ever made in this country; evokes the long-lost atmosphere of Edwardian London; and above all, shows that these two immigrants were waging a war over nothing less than the future soul of British art. Who won?
