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.

By the end of World War II, the Abstract Expressionists had turned New York into a center of the international art scene. The heterogeneous movement, with artists such as Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline and Helen Frankenthaler, provoked and inspired with an artistic sensibility drawn from European Modernism, the core of which was the expression of the spontaneous act of painting and subjective perception in abstract form.
