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.
In 1924, Andre Breton published the Surrealist Manifesto. It was the written constitution of a movement which, drawing on Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis, espoused a higher reality of the subconscious and the world of dreams. Each of the five artists presented here gave form to these ideas in their own unique way—from Miró’s world of symbolism and colour, to Tanguy’s “landscape of the soul”, to Dalí’s tangible dreamscapes.
