Hi!

There are two good series available from FACETS and other distributors:

<bold>Portrait of an Artist</bold> and <bold>Museum Without Walls

</bold>I'd also strongly consider Robert Hughes' excellent Shock of the
New (Ambrose Video) (a series about modernism) and American Visions (PBS
Home Video)
