From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh look at Claude Monet’s life. Pairing excerpts from over 2,500 of Monet’s letters with the paintings he was working on at the time and contemporary views of the environments in which he worked, this ﬁlm provides insight into the painter’s process and creative translation of nature, and his perseverance and dedication in the face of hardship and discouragement. Prior to the ﬁlm, Eric Haskell, Professor of French and Humanities and Director of the Clark Humanities Museum at Scripps College, will present a lecture on the relationship between Claude Monet’s gardening practices and painterly techniques. This film is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Reflections On Monet, on view through January 21, 2018. 2017, not rated, 2 hours and 9 minutes.
