Millerton’s Moviehouse to screen Cézanne: Portraits of a Life

The latest in a distinguished series of documentaries about great artists, collectively called Exhibition on Screen, is titled Cézanne: Portraits of a Life. It’s organized around the exhibition of the same name, dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne and opening in Paris before traveling to London and Washington. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery in London, MoMA in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, along with correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the Impressionists – until now.

Directed by Phil Grabsky, with narration by Brian Cox, Cézanne: Portraits of a Life will be screened on Tuesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the Moviehouse, located at 48 Main Street in Millerton. Tickets cost $14 general admission, $12 for Moviehouse members. To find out more, call (518) 789-0022 or visit or
