ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre will screen Cézanne: Portraits Of A Life as a high-definition Exhibition On Screen film presentation on Thursday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Working with top international museums and galleries, Exhibition On Screen create films which offer a cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from leading historians and arts critics.
According to the filmmaker, one cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Described by Picasso and Matisse as “the father of us all,” Cézanne is considered one of the greatest artists of all time, said the Strand, in a news release. Despite this, Cézanne remains somewhat unknown and misunderstood.
Filmed at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from MoMA in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and 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.
Directed by Phil Grabsky, this film was released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at London’s Tate Modern (Oct. 22 – March 23).
Running time is 1 hours 25 minutes.
Tickets: $15/General Admission, $12/Strand Members. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit www.rocklandstrand.com or call (207) 594-0070 EX 3.
The Strand Theatre is located at 345 Main St., Rockland.
