This three-part road trip across America by Waldemar Janusczak looks at the history of art in the country.

He starts off in the Wild West, covering as he does so Diego Rivera’s rock art murals; the drip paintings of Jackson Pollock; the romanticising drawings of the West by Frederic Remington; the landscape painting of Lancashire-born artist Thomas Moran.

Big Sky, Big Dreams, Big Art: Made in the USA is on BBC Four at 21.00.
