In this striking film from award-winning director Phil Grabsky, we take a new look at arguable 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 successful painter of the 19th and 20th centuries.
“My head is bursting – I want to paint it all” – Claude Monet
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 move loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.
