Product description

Product Description

This award-winning series reveals the full and fascinating stories behind famous works of art, not just how they were created, but also how they influenced others and came to have a life of their own in the modern world.

Pablo Picasso - Les Demoiselles D’Avignon:

This film relates how the painting – widely regarded as the beginning of modern art – grew out of Picasso’s fierce rivalry between Matisse and explains just why it was so revolutionary.

Gustav Klimt - The Kiss:

This episode examines an erotically charged and popular work and the subsequent speculation on the identities of the subjects – possibly including the artist himself - and which of the pair is the dominant partner.

Salvador Dali - Christ of St John of the Cross:

This documentary describes how Dali set up his synthesis of Catholic mysticism and nuclear physics – including suspending a Hollywood actor from the ceiling and employing a quantity surveyor.
