Film of Impressionist Painter Claude Monet at Work

This is unique film of great Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) at work on a canvas en plein air.

Above is the only known film footage of the French Impressionist Claude Monet, made when he was 74 years old, painting alongside a lily pond in his garden at Giverny. The footage was shot in the summer of 1915 by the French actor and dramatist Sacha Guitry for his patriotic World War I-era film, Ceux de Chez Nous, or “Those of Our Land.”
