EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents a magical cinematic journey through the world’s most beautiful artist gardens and the enduring masterpieces they inspired.
Season 3 of EXHIBITION ON SCREEN continues in UK cinemas from Tuesday 12 April 2016, with the opening of Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse.
Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Royal Academy, London.
This film, guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, is a remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring fascination with gardens today. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.
