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 humour, insight and love of life is revealed. 


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. 


Talk - Beyond the Water Lilies: Impressionists and their Gardens
A highly illustrated talk by the garden historian Twigs Way. Twigs will discuss the relation between artists such as Monet, Sorolla, Tissot, and Le Sidaner, looking and their own gardens as well as their conception of gardens as art. It will include gardens (and artists) in France, Spain and England - both private and public.

Twigs Way is a professional garden historian and currently divides her portfolio of work between research and consultancy, lectures and talks, and writing books.
