film of claude monet painting

This is something that l did not expect to see.  It's an old film from 1915 showing the artist Caude Monet at work. Two cultures coming together, with the old master looking like he is at deaths door, and the explosion of film and entertainment devices just around the corner.  Then again, Monet lived to 1926, so he got to see the First World War (or The Great War, as it was known then) before his death.  Lucky him.
