1000 Masterworks: Surrealism
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 1924 Andre Breton published the Surrealist Manifesto. It was the written constitution of a movement which, drawing on Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis, espoused a higher reality of the subconscious and the world of dreams. Each of the five artists presented here gave form to these ideas in their own unique way - from Miro's world of symbolism and color, to Tanguy's 'landscape of the soul', to Dali's tangible dreamscapes.
