The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism

Tuesday 21st March @ 8:20pm

Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887–1920’ from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American Impressionism. Taking its lead from French artists like Renoir and Cezanne, the American impressionist movement followed its own path which over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about its art as a creative power-house. It’s a story closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.

Michelangelo love and death

Michelangelo – Love & Death

Thursday 13th June @ 8:20pm

MICHELANGELO Love & Death To coincide with a glorious new exhibition at the National Gallery of London, this film offers a full and fresh biography of Michelangelo who, with Leonardo, is considered one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time. This film explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice which included painting, sculpture and architecture. Not least the universally adored David in Florence, the Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna (today at the National Gallery). This major new film goes to the heart of just who was this tempestuous, passionate but much loved genius.
