The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is pleased to present the 2023 Journey in Art History Exhibition on Screen (EOS) film series. EOS is the originator and pioneer of bringing exhibition-based art films to the cinema. Working with top international museums and galleries, EOS creates films which offer a cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from the world’s leading historians and arts critics. The three-part series will begin in January with brand new films each month through March. The focus of the Journey in Art series is to introduce the works of history’s greatest painters and to provide opportunities to view blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries worldwide.

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to reprise one of its most successful films, dedicated to the life and work of Paul Cézanne. Cezanne: Portraits of Life is a revealing portrait about a man dubbed ‘the father of us all’ by Matisse and Picasso. Narrated by multi award-winning actor Brian Cox, one cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. The film was recorded at the National Portrait Gallery in London, with additional interviews from experts and curators from Museum of Modern Art in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and Musée d’Orsay in Paris. With correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps one of the least known and yet most important of all the Impressionists. Cezanne: Portraits of Life was released to coincide with a major Cézanne exhibition at Tate Modern, the crown jewel of modern art galleries in London (Oct 22, 2021 – Mar 23, 2022). [2022, UK, 85 min, Not Rated]

 The Guardian writes, “A film that thoroughly requires careful listening and looking.”
