Discover the Great Masters of Art (9 DVD) Boxset - Description

An inspirational exploration of the lives, careers, influences and most famous works of nine of the greatest figures from a golden age of European art. Discover what shaped the art of the Great Masters, visit the landscapes which motivated them and see their masterpieces in exquisite detail.

This amazing box set includes the following individual DVDs focussed on each artist:

Discover the Great Masters of Art is an absorbing series examining nine of the most important, influential and renowned figures from a golden age of European art. Spanning four centuries – the 14th to the 17th – our series explores the careers, inspirations, beliefs, travels and, often, controversies, which shaped the lives and works of each subject.

This was an era of invention and discovery, of trade and wealth, of war and disease, of religious and political turbulence, and of amazing artistic renaissance and innovation. In each DVD we see how the Great Masters were influenced by their surroundings, their contemporaries and the past – and we uncover the genesis of some the greatest masterpieces ever created.

Throughout, we are treated to stunning footage of each Great Master’s most famous works, with exquisite close-up camerawork and expert re-assessment throwing new light and appreciation on the masterpieces.

We visit great museums, palaces and churches to see the artistic endeavours of our subjects, including minor works which help us understand the path to timeless masterpieces. We tour the great European cities, including Florence, Rome, Genoa and Venice, soak up the glorious countryside and see for ourselves what inspired these Great Masters.

Many of the DVDs include bonus features offering further detailed examination of the most significant works, and each is accompanied by a 24-page booklet taking you inside the world and masterpieces of each artist.

"Brilliant dvds of the classic art & artists each with individual history of their career & works and detailed examples of their paintings & sculptures. Highly recommended." (Grahame, UK,  Jan 2017)
