The Danish Collector: Delacroix to Gauguin
Sun, May 1 – 1:00 pm
Wed, May 4 – 7:00 pm

Directed by David Bickerstaff

For many years no-one was interested in the art of the Impressionists. Artists like Monet, Degas and Renoir were vilified, attacked, and left penniless as a result.

Then, something remarkable happened. A new breed of collectors emerged and, before long, they were battling to acquire any work by these new, radical artists that they could find. Amongst them was the visionary Danish businessman Wilhelm Hansen. It was an extraordinary moment in art history; full of drama, intrigue and subterfuge.

From Hansen’s beautiful house and gardens at Ordrupgaard to the streets of bohemian Paris, this film takes you on a journey to discover some of the best examples of 19th-century French art ever collected.


Pissarro: Father of Impressionism

Sun, May 29 – 1:00 pm
Wed, Jun 1 – 7:00 pm

Directed by David Bickerstaff

Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as the father of Impressionism.

Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris, and by the age of 43 had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics, but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists.

For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.


Sunflowers: The Mystery of Van Gogh’s Greatest Masterworks

Sun, Jun 12 – 1:00 pm
Wed, Jun 15 – 7:00 pm

Directed by David Bickerstaff

A unique opportunity to see, as never before, this series of spectacular paintings.

Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen.

Each painting is different and has its own unique story, spanning one of the most famous and turbulent periods in art history. All five paintings are also now considered to be in such a delicate state that there will never be a show with all five alongside one another ever again.

Only in this film will you have a chance to see that on the screen – in our virtual exhibition. In doing so, the film brings to audiences many new levels of understanding both about the paintings and about Vincent van Gogh.


Frida Kahlo

Sun, Jul 10 – 1:00 pm
Wed, Jul 13 – 7:00 pm

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.

Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?


Raphael Revealed

Sun, Aug 14 – 1:00 pm
Wed, Aug 17 – 7:00 pm

Directed by Phil Grabsky

In his brief career Raphael shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since.

This landmark exhibition looks at Raphael’s celebrated paintings and drawings as well as his work in architecture, poetry, and design for sculpture, tapestry, and prints.

Marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, the greatest exhibition ever held of his works took place in Rome. Exhibition on Screen was granted exclusive access to this once-in-a-lifetime show.

Award-winning director Phil Grabsky provides a fresh look at this giant of the Renaissance, and shows why he is considered one of the all-time greats.

The film covers his life in Rome, and includes unique footage of the ancient Rome that was such a powerful influence, including rare footage of Nero’s Golden House that Raphael himself visited.
