The Impressionists – And The Man Who Made Them!


Next up in EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is an eagerly anticipated exhibition travelling from the Musee d’Orsay Paris to the National Gallery, London and onto the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the most comprehensive film ever made about the Impressionists, The Impressionists – And The Man Who Made Them.

This exhibition brings together works by Manet, Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Renoir and Sisley, celebrating the man who ensured their talent was show-cased to the world, Paul Durand-Ruel.

The Impressionists – and the man who made them captures some of the world’s most famous paintings in stunning high definition as well as interweaving the incredible story of Durand-Ruel and the extraordinary lengths he went to make Impressionism a household name.

The Impressionists – and the man who made them will be coming to a cinema near you from the 26 MAY 2015!

Afghan Appeal Fund – Running for Teachers

“Thank you for visiting my page. We raised just about enough after my last marathon to fund the first two teachers through teacher-training college in northern Afghanistan. They will soon be returning to their village (the village of my films’ main character Mir) to help give girls a better chance in a tough, so tough, life. But we don’t want just to fund two women and then forget about it. We are committed to two a year. Your help would mean a lot to us. Keep an eye on my blog at seventh-art.com for occasional news about this project. Thanks again!” – Phil

Since writing that blog, I can now bring you more news from the village. Both women, Nikbakh and Zahra, have been back from Mazar and in their holidays have begun teaching. Equally good news is that the school has built a new additional block just for girls – giving them more space and facilities. The village as a whole is delighted to have better education for its young girls which is one small demonstration that Afghan culture is not universally anti-women’s schooling. For my part, I had to pull out of the 2015 Brighton marathon as I hurt my Achilles tendon but am now in training already for the 2016 marathon. We continue to fund the teacher training – and would like to do more – so please, any donation helps, to Justgiving/philgrabsky

Vincent van Gogh – a new way of seeing


We are excited to introduce the next film in EXHIBTION ON SCREEN Series 2, Vincent van Gogh – a new way of seeing in cinemas from 14th April 2015! A unique opportunity to behold a remarkable collection of great works from the Van Gogh Museum.

Made in close collaboration with curators and researchers at the Van Gogh Museum, this film marks not only a major re-presentation of the gallery’s collection but also the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death.

The Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of Vincent’s artistic output in the world and features great works such as The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers, Irises, The Bedroom and many of his self-portraits. This film not only provides viewers with the moving and inspiring experience of seeing Vincent’s iconic masterpieces on the screen, in close up, but also examines new insights and interpretation from specially invited guests including curators, historians and artists.

Vincent’s illuminating letters to his family and friends are brought to life by dramatisation, providing a major new biography. We track Van Gogh’s life from his beginnings in the Netherlands and England to his development as an impassioned artist in France. New research and recent discoveries address the many myths surrounding Vincent’s troubled life.

This film offers privileged access behind the scenes at the Van Gogh Museum as it represents its extensive collection in a new way, and with new understanding. We look intensely at the life of a man who reminds us the Art is long and life is short.

Impressionists in the Cinema


Earlier this week Phil Grabsky gave a talk about EXHIBITION ON SCREEN at Sotheby’s. Read about his view on why art films are celebrating art in a way that tv shows can’t, here on the Telegraph website.
