Documentary by Phil Grabsky (UK, 2017, 87 min.).
From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at one of the world’s favorite artists—in his own words. Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the painter whose work gave birth to Impressionism.
Monet’s life is a gripping tale about the man behind the sun-dazzled canvases who suffered from depression, loneliness, and even contemplated suicide. But as his art developed and his love of flowers led to the glories of his garden at Giverny, Monet’s humor and love of life also began to flourish. 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.
