Selected films chronicle the careers of six celebrated masters whose work helped to define the major European art movements of the first half of the twentieth century. Different stories highlight the concerns that shaped their creative output, sweeping social and political changes during the period, and the enduring artistic legacies that influenced subsequent generations on both sides of the Atlantic. This series is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from the Phillips Collection.
