'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. Throughout all the different epochs artists have been inspired by their personal environment. It is no wonder therefore that the city or metropolis has often played a key role in art. Estes, Delaunay, Stella, Caillebotte and Dahl also worked up their urban impressions in painting – with surprisingly different results. Featured works include Richard Estes - Ansonia [1977], Robert Delaunay - Eiffel Tower Champs de Mars [1911], Johann Christian Dahl - View of Dresden under a Full Moon [1839], Joseph Stella - The Brooklyn Bridge [1939] and Gustave Caillebotte - Paris Street Scene in the rain [1877]'.

Per its title, the documentary series 1000 GREAT MASTERPIECES FROM THE WORLD OF ART leads viewers on a systematic journey through art history, with each installment focusing on a specific school or collection. The programs draw on insights by the authors of short art surveys, who provide incisive commentaries that are then illustrated onscreen with specific works. This particular volume travels to the end of the Belle epoque, when a rise in global industrialization prompted artists to rebel against classicism in a diverse series of ways. Among these rebels were the Symbolists, who set out to create visual depictions of such elusive areas as subjective emotional states and the dream world. Meanwhile, the Jugendstil emerged, offering a linear, planar style which meshed with that of the Symbolists even as it stood on its own. Artworks glimpsed here include 'Salome' by Franz von Stuck, 'Madonna with Lilies' by Alfons Mucha and 'Spring Awakening' by Arnold Bocklin. (Reiner E. Moritz directs. Total running time approx. 50')

'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. In 1874, a group of artists nicknamed the Impressionists scandalized Paris with its first exhibition. The spirit of these young en plein air painters, who declared that the essence of their art was about capturing the impression of the moment in the colourful play of light, was too revolutionary. Cassatt, Caillebotte, Liebermann, Krøyer and Edelfelt represented a worldwide revolt that ushered in modernism by breaking with conventional ways of seeing the world. Albert Edelfelt: Luxembourg Gardens [1887], Peter Severin Kroyer: Summer evening at Skagen [1892], Gustave Caillebotte: Paris street scene in the rain [1877], Max Liebermann: Women mending nets [1887- 1889], Mary Cassat - The bath [1891 - 1892]' are among the featured works.

'Rebirth of a Nation, by DJ Spooky [Paul D. Miller], has been called a remix of D.W. Griffith's notorious and explicitly [if not avowedly] racist 1915 film The Birth of a Nation, applying the techniques of the electronic DJ to film instead of music. But it was also a musical score, and one of an unprecedented kind. You get both viewpoints on the work here: the album release includes two discs, one containing a complete version of DJ Spooky's remixed film, with the soundtrack recut and resynchronized to the film. Those who have seen Rebirth of a Nation in one of its many live realizations may wish to have this release for the sake of completeness. But really the music itself is another good reason. The cover rubric 'Performed by Kronos Quartet' doesn't quite represent what you hear; instead, the string quartet weaves in and out of DJ Spooky's electronic soundscapes, which both reflect and comment on the film's violent story'.
