I, CLAUDE MONET | United Kingdom
Genre
In this striking film from award-winning director Phil Grabsky, we take a new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words. Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, often suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. An unmissable cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.
