More About This Offer
Using the work of Monet as a starting point, this landmark exhibition examines the role gardens played in the evolution of art from the early 1860’s through to the 1920’s.
Trace the emergence of the modern garden in its many forms and glories as we take you through a period of great social change and innovation in the arts. Discover the paintings of some of the most important Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists of the early twentieth century as they explore this theme.
Monet, arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, once he owed his painting “to flowers”. But Monet was far from alone in his fascination with the horticultural world, which is why we will also be bringing you masterpieces by Renior, Cezanne, Pissarro, Manet, Sargent, Kadinsky, Van Gough, Matisse, Klimt and Klee.
For these artists and others, the garden gave them the freedom to break new ground and explore the ever-changing world around them. Highlights include a remarkable selection of works by Monet, including the monumental Agapanthus Triptych, reunited specifically for the exhibition, Renior’s Monet Painting in his Garden at Argenteuil and Kadinsky’s Murnau The Garden II.
As our galleries are bathed in the colour and light of more than 120 works, see the garden in art with fresh eyes.
Exhibition co-organised by the Royal Academy of Arts and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
