Take a moment to enjoy rare clips of both Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir as they paint what could be one of the masterpieces we know and love today.

Film of Impressionist Painter Claude Monet

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Filmed Painting at Home (1919)

According to the original video caption, also present in this footage are Renoir’s youngest son Claude, 14, who stands by to arrange the palette and place the brush in his father’s hand, and Sacha Guitry, the man who made this film in 1915 and who appears midway through the film sitting down and talking with the artist.
