Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse (12A)

From Monet to Van Gogh, Pissarro to Matisse, great artists have long seen the garden as a powerful subject for their art - and are here celebrated in an innovative and extensive exhibition from the Royal Academy of Art, London.


"Immersive and enriching" – Guardian


Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from the Royal Academy of Art, London.


From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas.


Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring facination with gardens today.


Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything’.  For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.

Shooting Jesus - Silver Screen Saviours (18+)

Join tutor Matt Page for this one day course exploring how filmmakers have been adapting the life of Jesus for the last 125 years.

From The Greatest Story Ever Told to Life of Brian; from The Passion of the Christ to Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter, filmmakers have been adapting stories from the gospels for over 125 years. This one day course follows the story of Jesus on film from the early silent passion plays to the million dollar, crowd-sourced, multi-season series of today, taking in a wide variety of approaches including musicals, comedies, science-fiction, the avant-garde and, of course, biblical epics. It will feature filmmakers from six continents with a range of religious perspectives (including none at all) and explore how they have adapted the greatest story ever told, negotiating the tricky terrain between faith, art, commerce and entertainment. Tutor Matt Page leads this one day course.

The Royal Ballet celebrates the breadth of Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s one-act ballets.


Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work. An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work’s critical success spurred MacMillan to abandon performing in favour of choreography.


It is followed by Different Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Büchner's play about a soldier’s descent into madness.


The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMillan’s friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.

John Singer Sargent (12A)

Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal and shameless self-promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era.


John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era.  What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, this film will examine how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion.


Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, the exhibition reveals Sargent’s power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention. Alongside 50 paintings by Sargent sit stunning items of clothing and accessories worn by his subjects, drawing the audience into the artist’s studio.


Sargent’s sitters were often wealthy, their clothes costly, but what happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of a great artist? The manufacture of public identity is as controversial and contested today as it was at the turn of the 20th century, but somehow Sargent’s work transcends the social noise and captures an alluring truth with each brush stroke.
