Claude Monet PHOTO COURTESY OF THE CRITERION THEATRE

‘I, Claude Monet’ paints ‘complex portrait’



BAR HARBOR — “I, Claude Monet,” part of the Exhibition On Screen series of arts documentaries, will be shown at The Criterion Theatre on Thursday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m.

“Disposing of traditional narration and talking heads, ‘I, Claude Monet’ allows Monet to tell his story in his own words,” according to a press release.

“Based on 3,000 surviving letters, the film reveals a tumultuous inner life marked by moments of intense depression and euphoric creation, offering a complex portrait of one of the world’s best loved artists. ‘I, Claude Monet’ also features over a hundred of Monet’s paintings filmed in high-definition, providing a unique window into his emotional and creative life.”

General admission tickets cost $10. Visit criteriontheatre.org. The screening is sponsored by ArtWaves MDI.

The 1932 Criterion Theatre is Bar Harbor’s nonprofit historic performing arts and movie house. Visit criteriontheatre.org.
