MARLOW MEETS: RENÉE FLEMING
For musicians, writers, directors and designers visual art is a passion and an enormous source of inspiration. In a series of 11 programmes Tim Marlow meets an individual artist in a gallery of their choice and finds out how certain pieces of art have inspired and motivated them. The result gives us a wonderful insight into the nature of creativity and a fascinating look at the life and career of each guest.
In this episode, Tim Marlow meets the America soprano Renée Fleming whose rich voice and magisterial stage presence has lit up opera houses all over the world. She reveals something of her taste in visual art at the Neue Galerie and Chuck Close’s Studio, both in New York.
