BRATTLEBORO — The inner life of one of the world's most beloved artists will be explored when Latchis Arts continues its presentations of Exhibition on Screen with I, Claude Monet on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 25 and 26, at 4 p.m., at the Latchis Theatre, 50 Main St.

Exhibition on Screen presents compelling documentaries about the world's best-loved art. Typically focused on major exhibitions throughout the world, Exhibition on Screen takes a different tack with I, Claude Monet, disposing of traditional narration and talking heads to focus instead on allowing Monet to tell his story through his own words, according to a news release.

Based on 3,000 letters Monet wrote, the film reveals a tumultuous inner life marked by moments of intense depression and euphoric creation. I, Claude Monet also features more than 100 of Monet's paintings filmed in high-definition, “providing a unique window into his emotional and creative life,” according to the release.

Exhibition on Screen programming made its debut at the Latchis Theatre in January and drew impressive audiences for The Curious World of Hieronymous Bosch.

Launched in 2011, Exhibition on Screen films have been seen by more than a million people in more than 1,500 cinemas in 50 countries. Their productions have been hailed as “exhilarating,” “a mesmerizing spectacle,” “immersive and enriching” and “an important and wonderful gift.”

Subsequent Exhibition on Screen presentations at the Latchis Theatre include The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism on April 1 and 2, and Michelangelo: Love and Death on June 17 and 18.
