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 Art Institute of Chicago is a Mecca for art. Founded in 1879, it combines an educational institution with a museum of international standing. Works from five millennia are displayed; however, of particular value are its extensive collections of impressionist paintings and the classics of American art, such as Wood’s “American Gothic”, amongst others.
