Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, by Curator Ann Dumas SOLD OUT
Talk | Royal Academy of Arts
Friday 5 February 2016 - 14:00 until 15:00
Royal Academy curator Ann Dumas introduces this show, which, using Monet as a starting point, explores the role gardens played in the evolution of art from the early 1860s through to the 1920s. Monet once said he owed his painting ‘to flowers’, but he was far from alone in his fascination with the horticultural world, as can be seen in the works by Renoir, Cézanne, Pissarro, Manet, Sargent, Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Matisse, Klimt and Klee. These artists sought to convey the ever-changing world around them, breaking new ground in the early history of Modern art.
