Claude Monet in his atelier in Giverny, 1920

This is unique film of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), painting outdoors, 'en plein air', in his garden at Giverny. The footage is in two segments. Firstly we see the artist outdoors talking to a gentleman. Then we see Monet painting a water lily-padded pond, a subject for which he is most famed.

“This is a view of Claude Monet standing in his first studio amidst his favorite canvases. The light of the afternoon is almost palpable. This room located in his main house at Giverny was turned into his sitting-room after 1890…” via

Frida Kahlo in her studio at Casa Azul. By this point, Kahlo had been painting for only four years. She started while recuperating from a near-fatal streetcar accident that crushed her spine and pelvis, leaving her permanently crippled and unable to bear children. Possibly to minimize the physical evidence of the damage, she began wearing the indigenous Mexican skirts and shawls that transformed her into a piece of multicultural theater.
