Description
Rembrandt's The Night Watch is one of the world's greatest group portraits. This program chronicles its painting, from conception in 1642 to the final version—one that Rembrandt may not have intended people to see. The second program reveals through Johannes Vermeer's The Art of Painting just how the Dutch master achieved perfect perspective in his works. It also explains how the painting later came into the possession of Adolf Hitler. The last film looks at the history, contemporary reaction, and legacy of Diego Velázquez's The Rokeby Venus, one of the most celebrated nudes in Western art.

This award-winning series reveals the full and fascinating stories behind famous works of art. It describes not just how they came to be created, but also how they influenced others and came to have a life of their own in the modern world.
