1,000 Masterworks - Surrealism
Moritz, Reiner - Television Director

Catalogue Number: 105004E

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 colour, to Tanguy's "landscape of the soul," to Dali's tangible dreamscapes.
