From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favorite artist—Claude Monet—through his own words.
Based on more than 2,500 letters and narrated by Henry Goodman, I, Claude Monet offers new insights 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 Monet painted, I, Claude Monet unfurls across some of the most loved and iconic scenes in western art.
