Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse – Exhibition on Screen
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 from Van Gogh to Pissarro to Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. This is an immersive film based on the sell-out show at the Royal Academy. From the exhibition walls to the beauty of artists’ gardens, this film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different artists built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract colour, decorative design and utopian ideas. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.
19Produced by award-winning director Phil Grabsky, ‘Exhibition On Screen’ brings blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries around the world to local cinemas. Phil will be in attendance for a Q&A session.
