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 ten short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting.

Great artists of various epochs were fascinated by dramas, myths and legends. Masters such as Millais, van Dyck, Massys or von Stuck developed their own unique interpretations of themes like passion, courage, tragedy or fate—and these have retained their magical allure right down to the present day.
