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. It is not only because of its postmodern architecture that the Centre national d'art et de culture Georges Pompidou is considered to be the most important centre of culture in France. Since it opened in 1977, it has housed the renowned Musee National d'Art Moderne, which attracts hoards of visitors from all over the world with its first-class collection of modern art. You will be introduced to a handful of selected works from the broad collection. Sonia Delaunay: ELECTRIC PRISMS (1914) Jean Dubuffet: HAPPY LANDSCAPE (1944) Alberto Giacometti: PORTRAIT OF JEAN GENET (1955) Juan Gris: THE BREAKFAST TABLE (1915) Yves Tanguy: AT 4 O'ClOCK IN THE SUMMER, HOPE (1929)

The wrong film is posted under this title. What is shown is the second film in the series (about Jean DuBuffet´s Happy Landscape).

Update (one day later): the problem has been fixed. Thank you, dedicated staff person!
