1000 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.
Increasing industrialization and historicism in the Belle Époque gave rise to diverse anti-classical art movements. The Symbolists countered realistic depictions with the representation of dreams and subjective emotional states. At the same time, the decorative Jugendstil, with its postulation of the Gesamtkunstwerk and a planar, linear formal canon, presented a style which accorded with the Symbolists.
