Film Series

A selection of films relating to the artists on view will be screened on Saturday afternoons at 1pm beginning on July 12. In this series of films, you can come and enjoy films that were inspired by or feature art by artists in the exhibition Monet to Picasso from the Cleveland Museum of Art. After each film, UMFA Curator Donna Poulton will lead a discussion about the film. Films include:

July 12, An American in Paris (1951)
The Gershwin musical, An American in Paris, was directed by Vincent Minnelli and featured Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron; earning six Oscars in 1951. The film, said to be Kelly¹s favorite, uses music and dance to move the plot, but the backdrops of this Hollywood back-lot production pay homage to such Parisian artists as: Toulouse-Lautrec, Vuillard, Rousseau, and other French artists of the time.

July 26, Vincent and Theo (1990)
Robert Altman directing Vincent and Theo (1990), a seemingly predictable docudrama of the life of Vincent and Theo van Gogh, is at his best allowing method actors, Tim Roth and Paul Rhys to decline into the madness and despair without the hackneyed melodrama of other films on van Gogh. van Gogh¹ post impressionist style is echoed in the cinematography by Jean Lepine.

August 9, Cabaret (1972)
The film musical, Cabaret directed by Bob Fosse, positions expatriates Liza Minnelli and Michael York in prewar Berlin with the rising tension of Nazi dominance. Their world revolves around the Kit Kat Club, at once a distraction and a mirror, of the face of Weimar politics. Fosse uses the palette and Œin tableaux¹ images of the Neue Sachlichkeit artists, George Grosz, Max Beckman and Otto Dix--German Expressionist Artists that protested the excesses of the bourgeoisies and the horrors of war.

August 23, Spellbound (1945)
An icon of 20th Century Surrealist Art, Salvador Dalí is less well known for his lifelong interest and work in film. His collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock in Spellbound (1945) is among his many collaborations as writer, actor and director most notably Un chien andalou and L'Âge d'Or. In Spellbound, Dalí was responsible for the set design of the dream sequence.

September 6, Camille Claudel (1988)
In Camille Claudel, Isabelle Adjani portrays the brilliant Claudel while Gerard Depardieu appears as the acclaimed Auguste Rodin. A true story of Claudel¹s genius as a sculptor; her work mentored by Rodin in his workshop; and their inspired and tortured relationship. It is a sobering and disturbing story of woman who dared to commit her life to art.

September 20, Amants de Montparnasse (1958)
The final years of the artist, Amedeo Modigliani¹s life is the subject of Max Ophüls¹ film, Amants de Montparnasse (1958). It recounts the often told, but no less compelling, narrative of a brilliant temperamental talent whose insecurities are tempered by his addictions. Recognized in the art world as a genius, he was not able to achieve financial recognition in his lifetime.

Teacher Workshop

Science and the Art of Impressionism
Saturday, September 13th
9:30 to 12:30 am

Color is in the eye of the beholder! What¹s the impact of shadowing with complementary colors? How did artists like Monet, Renoir, and Seurat change our impressions of the world around them? Answer these questions ­ and then take back to the classroom activities that demonstrate in important interplay between science and art. With discoveries like the invention of photography and Eugene Chevreul¹s theory of optical mixture, Impressionist artists began to incorporate these breakthroughs in their ever evolving ideas on artistic creation. Through a series of explorations and activities we¹ll explore the impact scientific research and new technologies of the time had on Impressionist artists. After a tour of the exhibition Monet to Picasso from the Cleveland Museum of Art, we¹ll explore numerous activities you can use in the classroom to pull images from light, learn how color is interpreted by the eye, and much more! Come prepared to interact, share, and explore! State in-service credit is available to educators.
Class is limited to 25 teachers.
