Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to bring back one of its most successful films ever, offering a unique and fascinating exploration of the life and times of Paul Cézanne. One cannot appreciate 20th-century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Filmed on location at the National Portrait Gallery London, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, this film features interviews with curators and experts, and correspondence from the artist himself, taking us beyond Cézanne’s portraits to the places he lived and worked, and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least known of all the impressionists – until now.
Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen. They are immediately recognisable, but our film goes beyond the surface to explore the many questions and mysteries that surround these works. Why, for example, did Van Gogh choose the exotic sunflower with its long stem and golden crown? Indeed, when did the flower itself arrive in Europe and how had previous artists reacted to it? What was Van Gogh trying to say with his works and how does that differ from version to version? And what secrets did scientists discover when they analysed the work in detail? All is revealed in this fascinating film, which travelled beyond Amsterdam to Tokyo, Philadelphia, London and Munich to film, in incredible high- definition detail, all five of the works. Each painting is different and has its own unique story, spanning one of the most famous and turbulent periods in art history. All five paintings are also now considered to be in such a delicate state that there will never be a show with all five alongside one another ever again. Only in this film will you have a chance to see that on the screen – in our virtual exhibition. In doing so, the film brings to audiences many new levels of understanding both about the paintings and about Vincent van Gogh.
