Four documentaries explore the lives of iconic visual artists Eva Hesse, Elizabeth Murray, Andrew Wyeth and Jean-Michel Basquiat

Uncovering the lives and works of four groundbreaking visual artists, American Masters presents an “Artists Flight” of new documentaries, premiering Fridays, August 31-September 14 on PBS (check local listings). Four films tell the stories of four artists: Eva Hesse, the 1960s art world icon who changed art history and women’s place in the picture; New York contemporary art maverick Elizabeth Murray; painter Andrew Wyeth, one of America’s most popular, but least understood, artists; and Jean-Michel Basquiat, the New York graffiti artist turned ’80s art world rock star who died 30 years ago (August 12, 1988). Each film will be available to stream the following day via pbs.org/americanmasters and PBS apps.

“Week over week, each artist’s tremendous contributions to the medium will be explored. Combined, they create a rich canvas of modern art,” said Michael Kantor, executive producer of American Masters.
