In this episode, author, journalist and ‘the funniest guy on Instagram’, Raven Smith explores how the various experiences of love have been expressed through art. Art that shows romance is loved by many and comes in all forms. From sculpture and photography, to paintings and films – the art of love is a language that speaks to us all. To discover more artworks which have been inspired by romantic love, take a look at our recent book Love, written by Alex Pilcher.
