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.

The anti-classical spirit of the Mannerists was awakened in the 16th century by religious and social changes. New masters such as Parmigianino, Massys, and Archimboldo began distancing themselves from Renaissance ideals shaped by harmony. In a creative ecstasy, they staged their rebellion with formal exaggeration, tension-filled compositions, and expressive colours often used in erotic, metaphysical or bizarre scenes.
