Most significant developments in art history often result from the fierce competition between genious masters. In this series, we discover the fruitful rivalries between renowned artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci versus Michelangelo, Vincent Van Gogh versus Paul Gauguin and Emil Nolde versus Max Liebermann, Caravaggio versus Giovanni Baglione and Joseph Turner versus John Constable. The 500 year death Anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci will be celebrated in 2019.

This series of portraits focus on the work of major artists of the XXth century, their foothold on their time and their mutual impact.

Completed episodes: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Marguerite Duras, Georges Simenon, Le Corbusier.
