Telegraph recruits Charles Saatchi to write weekly column on art masterpieces

By Zainab Mahmood

The Telegraph has announced a new weekly column on art masterpieces written by former advertising executive and art collector Charles Saatchi.

The column, entitled Charles Saatchi’s Great Masterpieces, will cover the backstory and history behind some of the world’s most famous art works.

Saatchi said: “I’ve always been fascinated by the origins of truly great masterpieces, wondering what inspired the artist behind them to create their vision.

“In my new weekly series in The Telegraph, I look forward to sharing my passion for world-renowned artworks, revealing insight into the artist’s lives and their paintings.”

The first column published today is about Frida Kahlo’s The Two Fridas.

The first ten Great Masterpieces Saatchi will provide insight into are:

  • The Two Fridas by Frida Kahlo
  • The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
  • Las Meninas by Diego Velázquez
  • The Night Watch by Rembrandt
  • The Burial of the Count of Orgaz by El Greco
  • Olympia by Édouard Manet
  • A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte by Georges Seurat
  • Rain, Steam and Speed by J.M.W. Turner
