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.
The Bauhaus (1919–1933) is considered the most prestigious school of architecture, design and art. This film introduces five of the most important Bauhaus teachers, whose visions and art theories made the school an icon of reform, experimentation, and the avant-garde. Their works and teachings, derived from Bauhaus ideas, spread all over the world, and have greatly influenced the modernist style.
