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. What began as an artist colony in the most northern town in Denmark consistently developed up to the foundation of it's own museum at the beginning of the 20th century. Since then the Skagens Museum presents a large collection of naturalistic, realistic and impressionistic works by internationally renowned artists such as Johansen, Krohg, Kroyer and Ancher.
