Film production TV Series: Masterpieces Revisited

Gustav Klimt “The Kiss”


A couple embracing, their bodies entwined in elaborate robes. “The Kiss (Lovers)” is Gustav Klimt's most famous work. The artist finished the painting in 1908 and it's now widely considered a masterpiece of the early modern period and a symbol of Vienna Jugendstil.


A journey through Europe to the icons the history of art

Ten paintings that everyone knows. Ten painters and their biographies. Ten masterpieces of art history. Hundreds of thousands times quoted, reproduced and received. In the series "Masterpieces Revisited" we travel to the most famous museums in Europe, show their most famous works and try a new approach to each.

What are the characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa to be an icon? Or the scream of Edvard Munch? Advertisers, designers, artists and art historians tell us why the old masterpieces are still very modern. They show us their interpretations and talk with us about their motivations.

In the ten-part TV series "Masterpieces Revisited" the Berlin film production Basiliscus Film dedicates ten pictures on behalf of Deutsche Welle, which gained cult status and our camera team made an extraordinary journey across Europe to the most famous paintings in art history.
