SynopsisThe documentary series tells the stories behind the most significant developments in art history that very often result from the fierce competition of genial masters of a single generation. We introduce the great antagonists in art and the artistic hotspots that developed through their rivalries. By showing the duels between the two artists we offer the audience a unique understanding of the master craftsmen and an entirely new perspective on their work.
Dramaturgically, the narrative of the duel not only opens opportunities for comparisons, but also the means to stage a showdown. The duel becomes a window to the stories behind them through which the social development can be more closely examined.
