Painting The Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse - Encore

For many great artists the garden has long been
considered a desirable subject for the expression of
colour, light and atmosphere.
Claude Monet is perhaps the most well-known painter
of gardens but other greats such as Van Gogh,
Pissarro, Matisse and Sargent all viewed the garden as
a meaningful focus for their talents. The work of these
great artists, along with many others, feature in a major
exhibition, ‘Painting the Modern Garden’, from The Royal
Academy, London.
This dazzling film takes a magical journey from the
gallery to the gardens, to Giverny and Seebüll and other
glorious grounds favoured by artists. Here we discover
how early twentieth century artists designed and
cultivated their own gardens to explore contemporary
utopian ideas and motifs of colour and form.
Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no
good at anything’. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens,
this is an ideal film.
