After premiering in Season 4 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN, I, Claude Monet is back by popular demand, revealing the heart and soul of arguably the world’s most loved artist.
I, Claude Monet, an award-winning documentary based entirely on Claude Monet’s personal letters, reveals Monet the artist, businessman and lover as never before. Disposing of traditional narration and talking heads, I, Claude Monet allows Monet to tell his story in his own words. Based on three thousand surviving letters, the film reveals a tumultuous inner life marked by moments of intense depression and euphoric creation, offering a complex portrait of one of the world’s best loved artists.
I, Claude Monet also features over a hundred of Monet’s paintings filmed in high definition, providing a unique window into his emotional and creative life. Brought to life by acclaimed actor Henry Goodman, Monet’s letters record his journey from prodigiously talented teenager to the grand old man of arts. They record remarkable encounters – from the painter Eugène Boudin, who he met as an enthusiastic amateur, to Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau, with whom he struck up a friendship as an elderly man.
