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.
As early as the mid-1400s, painters from the Netherlands were famed for their landscapes, portraits and altarpieces, which displayed unprecedented naturalism, a breathtaking sense of spatiality, psychological intensity and detailed representation of fabrics. Works by van der Goes, tot Sint Jans, Memling, Patinier and van der Weyden illustrate the groundbreaking innovations of the Early Netherlandish School.
