Grand'Art is a new prestigious documentary collection dedicated to the history of art.

Hector Obalk takes the viewer through visual presentations of the major names and moments in the history of art. Rather than reflecting upon artists' personal lives, the art market or the historical context of the work., the film focuses instead on painting and a love of painting - or architecture, sculpture and photography.

Through the lens of his camera, Hector Obalk scrutinizes various works, concentrating on the pictures' details. The commentary is clear, sharp, original, expressive, caustic and sometimes dead-pan. The exceptionally high-quality images are entirely shot in HD.

Art historian and writer Hector Obalk has written many essays on modern and contemporary art. He is an expert on the writings of Marcel Duchamp, and has published his correspondence (Thames & Hudson). He has collaborated on numerous magazines, and taken part in television programs. As a regular columnist on the magazine ELLE, his new approach to art has earned him recognition from the public at large.
