Anita Klein on Piero della Francesca

In this episode Dr Laura-Jane Foley meets artist Anita Klein who talks about the 'Madonna del Parto' (1457) by Italian Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca (c.1415 - 1492). Anita, whose own work explores the personal and private spheres, chooses an iconic painting which depicts the inner female experience. It is, Anita tells us, a painting she wishes she had painted.
