Only few other TV series on art have ever been as successful and widely known as 1,000 Meisterwerke. In a unique collection, 50 of the popular short considerations invite you to take an excursion through the world of art history. Renowned authors will take an up close and personal look at various masterpieces—from Dürer to Warhol—the result are ten information-packed and entertaining minutes, respectively. What does this work of art convey? What was the intention of the painter? What is the context of the work, relative to the period in which it originated? Layer by layer, levels of meaning will be exposed, experience of context rendered tangible, and breakdowns made clear. The thus decrypted work will grant both a fascinating insight into the world of the artist and into his time.
