Jewels by Pierre Cavassilas( Visual )

"George Balanchine and the Paris Opéra always enjoyed a special relationship, after Jacques Rouché, the then administrator, offered the young choreographer the post of ballet master in 1929. Balanchine declined the job, but he created several ballets for the company and came to the Palais Garnier regularly to oversee his works. In 2000, seventeen years after his death, a rare and precious ballet arrived at the Opéra national de Paris: Jewels, a work first performed by the New York City Ballet in 1967. This alluring, abstract ballet, a triptych in which each piece sparkles with the brilliance of a precious stone, is a lyric tribute to women and to the capital cities of the great dance schools. Couturier, painter and craftsman Christian Lacroix created the glorious costumes and sets which, together with the outstanding performances of the dancers and the sensitive musical direction of Paul Connelly, results in a celebration of sumptuous splendour."--Conteneur

'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 late 18th and early 19th centuries are regarded as a radical period in British art, in which artists responded to industrialisation and social change with new forms of genre painting and portraiture. Names like Wright of Derby, McTaggart, Wilkie, Raeburn and Millais symbolise a period of upheaval - a time of both reflection and reorientation. Sir John Everett Millais: OPHELIA (1851-52) Joseph Wright of Derby: AN EXPERIMENT ON A BIRD IN THE AIR PUMP (1767/68) William McTaggart: THE STORM (1890) Sir David Wilkie: WILLIAM BETHUNE, HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER (1804) Sir Henry Raeburn: REVEREND ROBERT WALKER SKATING (1784)

Bernhard Heisig by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mists of war and violence, the Harlequin, trumpet in hand, drifts through ravaged landscape passing a cripple and a marionette: Bernhard Heisig's pictorial worlds shock the viewer by depicting the great dramas of German history. Both a victim and a perpetrator in World War II and in the GDR dictatorship, the artist's search for sense and truth led him to his moving image formulas. Director Reiner Moritz converses with the renowned ex-principal of the Leipzig Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst (Academy of Visual Arts) about his work, which influenced the development of art for many decades in the rigid GDR system. I can only really paint rage well. Rage! Bernhard Heisig
Wolfgang Mattheuer by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfgang Matt Heuer is next to Bernhard Heisig and Werner Tubke one of the central figures of the Leipzig School. With works such as Behind the Seven Mountains (1973) the graphic artist, painter and sculptor is one of the most controversial and yet most celebrated artists of the former GDR. With mythology, literary references and ambiguous details, he subverted the ideological regulations of the system. The film introduces us to the great works of the quiet but astute image-maker. A haunting interview with Matt Heuer opens up its multi-layered imagery and metaphorical answers to current affairs and GDR regime

Willi Sitte( Visual )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in German and English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Painter and government official - the two sides of Willi Sitte which made him the most important yet most controversial East German artist. Portraying the working class, defying imperialism or revealing intimate togetherness, he became the leading figure of Socialist Realism. His career in the Association of Fine Artists (VBK) and the Central Committee (ZK) of the SED elevated his status to that of 'Prince of East German Painting'. Reiner Moritz met the controversial, first-rate draughtsman in his studio after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Through his life and work, he traces the story of Sitte's artistic development in the service of socialist ideology
Harald Metzkes( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierrot, the Harlequin and Don Quixote come from Berlin. They are the actors in Harald Metzkes' paintings, the parable-like characters in the great tragicomedy of human life, the ambivalent interplay between 'black and white' in daily as well as political life. Using characters from literature, mythology and the circus, Metzkes rejected the ideological appropriation of the GDR state apparatus. His melancholic sensualism made him a protagonist of the Berlin School. Reiner E. Moritz visited the 'Cézannist' shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In conversation with Metzkes, he traces the life and work of one of East Germany's most lyrical artists. "Man is ultimately alone with his inner self, and he will remain so." Harald Metzkes
Werner Tubke by Reiner E Moritz( Visual )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in German and English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Step right up into the world of Werner Tubke! The painter and illustrator from Leipzig created fantastical imagery, replete with virtuosity and a love of storytelling. In the style of the old masters, he transformed the everyday and the political into something that transcends time, and in that way developed his own distinct, anachronistic viewpoint. As a co-founder of the Leipziger Schule, Tubke paved the way for a figurative art, which has earned him international recognition since the 1970s. Reiner Moritz met with the GDR's extravagant prince of painting in his studio and accompanied him at work on his showpiece, the German Peasants' War panorama in Bad Frankenhausen
