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.

In the early 16th century, the Italian Renaissance captivated the countries north of the Alps with its pioneering innovations and discoveries. In the context of the Reformation, the Italians’ rediscovery of antique aesthetics and the northern Gothic tradition, artists such as Dürer, Baldung Grien, Holbein the Younger, Cranach the Elder and Bruegel the Elder greatly influenced this glorious epoch.
