Seraphine

...


"Based on a true story, SÉRAPHINE centres on Séraphine de Senlis (Moreau), a simple & profoundly devout housekeeper whose brilliantly colourful canvases adorn some of the most famous galleries in the world. German art critic & collector Wilhelm Uhde (The Lives of Others Ulrich Tukur) - the first Picasso buyer & champion of naïve primitive painter Le Douanier Rousseau - discovers her paintings while she is working for him as a maid in the beautiful countryside of Senlis near Paris. A moving & unexpected relationship develops between the avant-garde art dealer & the visionary outsider artist.

Martin Provosts fictionalized & poignant portrait of Séraphine is a testament to creativity & the resilience of one womans spirit"


I kneel on the floor too
sometimes so close it's a blur & out of focus
I have three easels, but I don't use them
I'm not claiming to be as good or anything like that
just I laughed when I saw her doing the same
