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. The Art Institute of Chicago is a Mecca for art. Founded in 1879, it combines an educational institution with a museum of international standing. Works from five millennia are displayed; however, of particular value are its extensive collections of impressionist paintings and the classics of American art, such as Wood's "American Gothic", amongst others. Gustave Caillebotte: PARIS STREET SCENE IN THE RAIN (1877) Mary Cassatt: THE BATH (1891-93) Robert Delaunay: EIFFEL TOWER CHAMP DE MARS (1911) Edward Hopper: NIGHTHAWKS (1942) Grant Wood: AMERICAN GOTHIK (1930)
