“My head is bursting – I want to paint it all.” – Claude Monet

From award-winning director Phil Grabsky comes this fresh new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – 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 letters reveal his humour, insight and love of life.

Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice and screened at Riverside, I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.
