The Monuments Men

This exciting upcoming film, directed by and starring George Clooney, will premier in UK cinemas on Friday 14th February.

Based on the book of the same name by Robert Edsel, the plot tracks the attempts of the members of the MFAA platoon as they try to stem Hitler's systematic plundering of art throughout Europe during World War II.

Bridgeman is proud to be supplying images for the set design and the film's publicity tour. 

 

 

The real Monuments Men were a group 345 men and women from 13 different countries, joining together to protect cultural treasures in areas affected by WWII. They located and returned over 5 million cultural items stolen by Hitler and the Nazis.

Iconic paintings rescued by the Monuments Men and featured in the film include Manet's In the Winter Garden (1878/9), hidden in the Merkers Salt Mines, and the Ghent Altarpiece by Jan and Hubert van Eyckm, one of thousands of works recovered in the Altaussee Salt Mines in Bavaria at the end of World War II.

Wolf of Wall Street

Works by Bridgeman artists Timothy Easton, Lincoln Seligman and Alexander Goudie were licensed for the set design of Jordan Belfort's (Leonardo DiCaprio) summer house in the Hamptons.

The movie, directed by Martin Scorsese, is based on the true life story of Belfort's meteoric rise and fall as a wheeling, dealing New York City stockbroker. Already in cinemas, Wolf of Wall Street has been shortlisted for the Oscars.

Tim's Vermeer

In this Oscar-shortlisted documentary, inventor Tim Jenison aims to put together "an alternate history" of Jan Vermeer by exploring how the 17th century master painted in such a photorealistic style.

Directed and produced by Penn & Teller, the film spans over 8 years as Jenison tries to recreate the magic that makes Vermeer one of our favourite artists of all times.
