A storm of Modernism swept through the art worlds of the West in the early decades of the twentieth century, uprooting centuries of tradition. The epicenter of this storm was Paris, France. For an incandescent moment from 1905 to 1930, Paris was the magnetic center for radical innovation and experiment, and the Mecca for creative talents who would change the course of art throughout the Western world.

Comments about PBS Paris - The Luminous Years DVD:

This is just superb. Never mind that the art itself is worth seeing/hearing, but to really get the context of the times, the people, and the creative energies of all sorts is such a gift! Wonderful viewing.

Comments about PBS Paris - The Luminous Years DVD:

What a fantastic film! It interweaves music, art and writing from the period into a coherent and comprehensive documentary of the period. Thorough, but not so academic as to become dry or slow, it remains entertaining, while being informative.

It was a treat listening to Paris: The Luminous Years. Not only that but it presented a excellent and thorough account of the history modernism and the importance of Paris in that movement. Highly recommended.

First rate

Comments about PBS Paris - The Luminous Years DVD:

This DVD offers an interesting and, indeed, "luminous" account of the community of artists, much more often than not from other countries (Spain, Russia, etc.), active in Paris in the first thirty years of the Twentieth Century. It is accessible to youngsters as well as to adults.
When I later saw Midnight in Paris, I wondered if Woody Allen hadn't been inspired by this splendid DVD.
I've offered "Paris, The Luminous Years" to several friends who, without exception, have expressed enthusiasm.
All in all, a wonderful experience.

Complement to Midnight in Paris

By JazzPTY

Comments about PBS Paris - The Luminous Years DVD:

I was watching Woody Allen`s Midnight in Paris and was thinking how little I knew about Paris and the artists that lived and live in City of Lights.
The documentary filled many gaps I had in an easy and approachable way.
