Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Chris Hollins, SHOW ME THE MONET brings in artists from the United Kingdom to compete for a spot at a grand exhibition and sale: the Royal College of Art in London (Season 1) and the The Mall Galleries, London (Season 2). In each 45-minute episode, two or three artists -- sculptors, painters, and photographers -- present their work to three judges, who decide whether that person's art is worthy of being part of the exhibition. The judges include: Charlotte Mullins -- an art historian, critic and broadcaster -- who studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art and Sotheby's Institute in London; David Lee, an art critic and historian, who is currently editor of the satirical art magazine "The Jackdaw," which he founded in 2000; and Roy Bolton, an art historian and dealer, who took over one of the Old Master paintings departments for Christie's auction house in London. Ovation aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Monday, April 7, 2014 at 7am ET/4am PT, showing back-to-back episodes.
