American Realism of the 20th Century

From Hopper to Wyeth, authors trace back the growing tendency to Realism in American art that emerged after the First World War. In stark contrast to European Modernists, US artists made their nation the central theme of their work – the ‘American way of life’ with all its regional stereotypes and socio-political themes. Masterpieces such as Wood’s “American Gothic” have become national symbols.

American Realism of the 20th Century contains five short documentaries that look at; Reginald Marsh’s “Twenty Cent Movie”, Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks”, Grant Wood’s “American Gothic”, Andrew Wyeth “Christina’s World”, and Georgina O’Keeffe’s “The White Calico Flower”.

1000 Masterworks 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. Compressively illustrated and compellingly presented – the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting.
