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.
One of the greatest 20th-century art collections can be found in Venice, at the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal. In 1949, the legendary Peggy Guggenheim acquired the unfinished 18th-century Palazzo for use as a residence. Right from the start, she began exhibiting her world-class collection of Cubist, Abstract and Surrealist works—among them Duchamp’s Sad Young Man on a Train.
