Notes & Reviews:
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.
From Die Brücke (The Bridge) to Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), the authors trace the Expressionism in Germany during the early 20th Century. Among others, they showcase the key works of a North German oddball, a Bavarian animal lover and a man who had in fact dissociated himself from the Expressionists, but who could not escape their influence.
