Water Lilies of Monet-The Magic of Water and Light (ARTiculate: Films)

For over 20 years, French Impressionist founder Claude Monet painted a series of around 250 paintings of water lilies in his garden at his home in Giverny, perfectly capturing the ever-changing interplay of color and light of the flowers and their reflections in the water in every season and at different times of the day and night. This series is seen as among the most important Impressionist paintings, earning Monet the title of “Raphael of Water”. This film visits the heavenly Monet’s garden at Giverny and Musée d’Orsay, Musée de l’Orangerie and Musée Marmottan in Paris to unravel the mystery of Monet’s obsession with water lilies and gives audiences the opportunity to become enchanted with the painter’s unique vision.

Vermeer and Music (ARTiculate: Film)

In the film Girl with a Pearl Earring, inspired by Vermeer’s famous painting, Scarlett Johansson perfectly captures the spirit of the title character with her dreamy expression, captivating eyes and luscious lips. Along with Rembrandt and van Gogh, Vermeer is seen as one of the three greatest Dutch masters. Meticulously rendering the play of light and shadows with soft and delicate tones, Vermeer’s masterpieces, such as The Milkmaid, Woman Reading a Letter and The Art of Painting are almost always set within confined domestic spaces, combining carefully arranged objects and human figures in superb compositions.

The Impressionists and the Man Who Made Them (ARTiculate: Films)

When impressionist painters were still being shunned and mocked by the art establishment – with one art critic even labeling them as “lunatics” – French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel recognized their brilliance and became determined to show them off. As the man who kept painters like Monet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley afloat by buying up nearly 12,000 of their works and putting them on exhibitions, Durand-Ruel brought Impressionism to the world and has even been credited with creating the modern art market.

Frida: Viva la Vida (ARTiculate: Films)

The Tate Gallery in London named Mexican artist Frida Kahlo one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Her oeuvre consists mostly of self-portraits that combine elements of traditional Mexican culture and magical realism, which are widely collected by major museums, causing “Fridamania” the world over. Andre Breton, the founder of the Surrealist movement, likened her works to a ribbon around a bomb, while Picasso thought that no one can paint a better self-portrait than Kahlo, and Duchamp helped her organize an art exhibition in Paris. More recently, fashion houses such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana introduced collections inspired by her art, and there is even a Frida Kahlo-style Barbie doll!
