John Singer Sargent captured Monet at work, the lovely Camille reposing in the background.
By now many of you know I love the work of the Impressionist painters–and of Richard’s incandescent performance as the passionate, dedicated, hardworking artist, Claude Monet. If you are familiar with Monet’s work and with Richard’s performance in The Impressionists, these images will strike a chord with you. Seeing that blue smock makes me smile.

I have also included my second Monet video, which incorporates actual quotes from the artist himself and images of his paintings along with screencaps from the series, paired with Yo-Yo Ma’s poignant cello. It’s bittersweet, not unlike Monet’s own life with its “lights and shadows.”
Not surprisingly, I find it one of my most artistic videos. How can you go wrong with Richard Armitage, Claude Monet and Yo-Yo Ma (and in HD)?
