In this short but moving new video released by Tate Britain, news presenter Jon Snow picks his two favourite pieces from their current collection.
The first is No Woman, No Cry by Chris Ofili, a painting that depicts Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, a story that Snow says he covered from the very beginning and throughout the 18 years it took for his killers to be brought to justice. The painting shows Doreen crying, but as Snow explains, they're tears of 'defiance and stoicism' not grief.
The second piece he selects is Miss Earhart's Arrival by Walter Sickert. It depict the moment when Earhat - the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic - arrives back in London after completing her journey to met by crowds of spectators. In it Snow identifies his 'fraternity' - the journalists - and reflects on the power of the painting in a year of turmoil for the media.
Who'd have thought a man with Snow's taste in ties would have such a keen eye for art? But he does, and we find ourselves wishing his tour of the Tate would go on and on.
