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.

This is one of the greatest museums on earth and, with its historic buildings in the heart of St Petersburg, it is one of the most popular sites of pilgrimage within the UNESCO portfolio of world culture. Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great as a private collection, the Eremitage is a magical center of attraction for art lovers from around the world, with just under three million works. The collection of European art enjoys a particular reputation for its paintings from Rembrandt to Gauguin.
