I, Claude Monet

  • Synopsis
  • From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh 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, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his letters reveal his humour, insight and love of life.
    Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION OPENING SESSION: MONET’S REPETITIONS
    Monet didn’t sign his paintings in the same way throughout his life. There’s an interesting correspondence between changes in his approach to his signature and changes in his depiction of shadows. What is the nature of this connection? What if we tried thinking of Monet’s signature itself as a kind of shadow, and the shadows themselves as some kind of signature?
    In his second lecture for the State Cinema’s EXHIBITION ON SCREEN series, Chris Arneaud-Clarke from the University of Tasmania will explore this possibility in relation to the many repetitions in Monet’s work. The lecture follows the opening screening of I, Claude Monet on Saturday the 25th of February.

The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement

  • Synopsis
  • Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism.

    American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

    The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.

Michelangelo: Love and Death

  • Synopsis
  • To coincide with a glorious new exhibition at the National Gallery of London, this film offers a full and fresh biography of Michelangelo who, with Leonardo, is considered one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time. This film explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice that included painting, sculpture and architecture. Among the works explored are the universally adored David in Florence, the Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna (today at the National Gallery).

    This major new film goes to the heart of just who was this tempestuous, passionate giant of art history.
