Cezanne: Portraits of Life

View Screenings

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to reprise one of its most successful films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne. Cezanne: Portraits of Life is a revealing portrait about a man dubbed ‘the father of us all’ by Matisse and Picasso. Narrated by multi award-winning actor Brian Cox, one cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. The film was recorded at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from Museum of Modern Art in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and Musée d’Orsay in Paris. With correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists. Cezanne: Portraits of Life was released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at Tate Modern, the crown jewel of modern art galleries in London (Oct 22, 2021 – Mar 23, 2022).

Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman

View Screenings

Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art, during the mid-to late-1800s. Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often- overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted. Originally from Pennsylvania, she lived most of her adult life in France. Mary printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals - the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent, Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all. [2021, US, Runtime: 93 min, Not Rated]
