Michel Lawrence investigates the constructed world in art, talking with artists and photographers discussing the man-made world as the inspiration for their art. The gallerist/collector Charles Justin - a retired architect - sees the art of the constructed world as a way of helping explain the modern world. An eclectic group of artists all discuss their greatly varied artistic styles to present the world in a sometimes-abstract manner, but always in a thoughtful and questioning way of assessing modern life. Stephen Hayley, Simon Finn and the German/American sculptor Thomas Demand all explain how modern technology has helped them shape their art.

A collection of portraits of some of the greatest artists including painters, architects, sculptors and photographers, along with their masterpieces as you've never seen them before. Everyone knows their names, they are among the most inventive artists of their generation. But behind the legends, who are they? Ambiguous personalities, each with their own controversial style, they broke all the codes. Famous the world over for their works, they each reflect their respective era. Through expert interviews, each episode takes us behind the scenes of a major exhibition to discover how, for example, Roy Lichtenstein invented a new artistic movement from nothing, or how Le Corbusier became a lasting influence on successive generations of architects. A fascinating documentary series which takes us inside the world of the artist to understand his work, revealing the secrets of the creative process.

In joyous, early 20th century Montmartre, a band of penniless artists comprising Max Jacob, Picasso, Apollinaire, Derain and Vlaminck, among others, takes up residence in an old piano factory: le Bateau-Lavoir. Soon enough, anyone who is anyone in the way of painters, writers, and art collectors is rubbing shoulders in the shabby-chic hallways of their warehouse. The bohemian lifestyle that they cultivate revolves around doing work, meeting muses, and making merry. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Seine, Matisse, known for leading a life of austerity, is busy turning the established order upside down at the Salon d'Automne of 1905, exhibiting works that burst with flamboyant colour. Fauvism is born. From within the murky halls of the Bateau-Lavoir, Picasso prepares his response. Paying homage to their respective visions of modernity, the two painters ready their brushes for a contest of canvases.
