Exhibition on Screen: Season Four
Since 2013, the documentary series Exhibition on Screen has given filmgoers in more than 50 countries and 1,500 cinemas access to some of the world’s blockbuster museum and gallery shows without having to travel to see them. This series is the brainchild of veteran British film producer and director Phil Grabsky, who visited the CMA in 2009 with his music documentary In Search of Beethoven. In July and August, the four films in season four of this ongoing series will debut locally in the CMA’s Morley Lecture Hall. Each program $14; CMA members $10.
Excerpts from Monet’s 2,500 plus letters shed new light on the Impressionist who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the late 19th and early 20th century.

This new film journeys from the print and drawing rooms of Europe through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome, and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of the great Renaissance artist. Cleveland premiere.
This film gives the viewer entrée to the blockbuster museum show that the Guardian called “one of the most important exhibitions of our century.”
