a fresh and intimate cinematic exploration of some of the most loved and iconic scenes in western art.

Shot in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice, I, Claude Monet looks at one of the world’s most influential artists – 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 humour, insight and love of life is revealed.” (Exhibition on Screen)
