From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favorite artist – through his own words. See the trailer.
Based on over 2,500 letters and narrated by Henry Goodman, “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.
Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. However, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his Giverny garden, his humor, insight and love of life are revealed.
Shot on location throughout Europe at the very spots he painted, “I, Claude Monet” is a fresh and intimate cinematic exploration of some of the most loved and iconic scenes in western art.
This film will be shown by Southlake Public Library on March 14 at 6 PM on the 3rd Floor of Southlake Town Hall. Currently, it’s the only planned showing in the state of Texas!
