The Lonely Palette is the podcast that returns art history to the masses, one painting at a time.

Man, art history.  It's so snooty.  And boring.  Right?

Or maybe...wrong?  As it turns out, art history is as interesting and accessible as its stories.  And the stories are why you're here. 

Each episode of The Lonely Palette, creator and host Tamar Avishai picks an object du jour, interviews unsuspecting passers-by in front of it, and then dives deeply into the movement, the social context, the anecdotes, and anything and everything else that will make it as exciting to you as it is to her. 

Episodes have aired most recently on PRX Remix and CBC Radio's Podcast Playlist.

New around here?  Welcome!  Start with this episode.


The Lonely Palette is a proud founding member of Hub & Spoke, a new collective of independent, idea-driven podcasts.
