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 preoccupation with the artists Delaunay, Louis, Kupka, Itten and Nay involves the study of one of the most exciting movements of Classical Modernism—abstract painting. In their works the concentration on light and colour is the central feature which can be seen as an overriding common aspect in their geometrical abstract paintings.
