A unique film of Impressionist painter Claude Monet at work on a sunny day on a canvas en plein air in his Garden at Giverny. The footage from this short film comes from a 1952 French documentary - produced by Sacha Guitry for his project Ceux de Chez Nous, or Those of Our Land. We see Guitry and Monet talking with each other at the beginning of the film. The film was shot during the summer of 1915 when Monet was 74 years old.
