Yann Martel, Love, Delacroix, Mark Wallinger

Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger is perhaps best known for his Christ-like figure which became the first artwork to stand on the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London. His latest work involved him driving repeatedly round an Essex roundabout. He talks about that and his other new works that make up his new solo exhibition. Yann Martel won the Man Booker Prize in 2002 with Life of Pi which has now sold 13m copies worldwide making it the highest-selling winning book in the prize's history. He talks about his latest novel, The High Mountains of Portugal, another magic realist fable this time spanning the 20th Century. Love is a new comedy created by Judd Apatow which follows a romance between two Los Angeles singletons. Natalie Haynes reviews. Delacroix and the Rise of Modern Art focuses on how the artist Eugène Delacroix transformed French painting in the 19th century. Richard Cork reviews the new exhibition at the National Gallery in London. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Angie Nehring.…read more
