Exhibition on Screen: Painting the Modern Garden – Monet to Matisse

Step into the gardens of some of the world’s best loved artists that the world would came to know through the masterpieces they inspired.

For many great artists, the garden has been a desirable subject for the expression of colour, light and atmosphere. Claude Monet, Van Gogh, Pissarro, Matisse and Sargent all viewed the garden as a meaningful focus for their talents. The work of these greats, along with many others, featured in a major exhibition, ‘Painting the Modern Garden’, from The Royal Academy, London.

Directed by David Bickerstaff, this dazzling film takes a magical journey from the gallery to the gardens, to Giverny and Seebüll, showing you how 20th century artists designed their own gardens to explore contemporary ideas, colour and form.
