Exhibition on Screen: Painting the Modern Garden – Monet to Matisse
Dir David Bickerstaff, UK, 2016, 93 mins
For many great artists the garden is a desirable subject for the expression of colour, light and atmosphere. Claude Monet is perhaps the best-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. In this dazzling film we discover how early twentieth century artists designed and cultivated their own gardens to explore contemporary utopian ideas and motifs of colour and form.
