Discover the role played by the humble garden in the modern history of art with Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse at the Royal Academy of Arts.
Tracing the evolution of art from the 1860s to the 1920s, the exhibition explores the theme of the modern garden in an era of great social change. On display are works by prominent impressionists, post-impressionists and avant-garde artists, who attempted to break new ground as they tackled the ever-changing world of the garden.
With a focus on Monet’s famous scenes and his complete Agapanthus Triptych, the exhibition also features masterpieces by many other important artists inspired by the same theme. The 120 horticultural paintings on show include works by Cezanne, Renoir, Manet, Pissarro, Sargent, Van Gogh, Matisse, Kandinsky, Klimt and Klee.
