Painting the Modern Garden – Monet to Matisse

About this event

A film for lovers of art and lovers of gardens.

Based on the sell-out show at the Royal Academy of Arts London.

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 Van Gogh, 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 Art London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, this film takes a magical and widely-travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract colour, decorative design and utopian ideas.

A film by Exhibition on Screen.

Filmed and directed by David Bickerstaff. Produced by Phil Grabsky.
