Vegetable Garden shows a cleared patch of ground in the Suffolk garden of the artist Patrick George.

Vegetable Garden shows a cleared patch of ground in the Suffolk garden of the artist Patrick George. George trained at Camberwell School of Art under influential teachers including Lawrence Gowing and William Coldstream. In 1961 he moved to Suffolk and became increasingly occupied with painting the scenery of East Anglia. The resulting pictures were highly admired for their atmospheric depictions of this magical landscape. George was a keen gardener and grower of vegetables. Vegetable Garden is a scene in his garden at Great Saxham and shows the ground ready for a new season of planting. It also illustrates George’s late, looser style. The painting now joins 70 other works of art at the Garden Museum, alongside pictures by other distinguished artist-gardeners including Edward Bawden, Cedric Morris and Paul Nash.
