1,000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented—the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting.
Cubism and Futurism—at the beginning of the 20th century these two art movements revolutionised Western ways of seeing. Sceptical of the observable reality of the time, the European artists gave form to the multifarious nature of their perception and captured the dynamics of modern life. Whether they were works that provoked media attention or just symphonies of colour—these masterpieces paved the way for modern art.
