PAINTING THE MODERN GARDEN – MONET TO MATISSE
“Mesmerizing” The Herbarium Project
“the film adds detailed views of the canvases, tours of otherwise inaccessible artist’s gardens and interviews with modern artists” Homes and Antiques
Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone.
Great artists like Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Royal Academy of Arts, London.
