MARLOW MEETS: TONY BENNETT
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 programme, Tim meets Tony Bennett at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Tony Bennett is one of the legends of American music but is also a painter who’s work is displayed in the Smithsonian collection in Washington.
