Exhibition On Screen: Monet To Matisse

Season 3 of Exhibition On Screen presents a new film celebrating the exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Painting The Modern Garden: Monet To Matisse will explore the intriguing relationship between the world’s greatest artists and horticulture.

The film will transport viewers across Europe to some of the most beautiful gardens depicted in art, from Monet’s water lilies at Giverny to Bonnard’s privately owned garden in Vernonnet. It will also offer privileged access to the artworks they inspired, on display at the Royal Academy exhibition Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse (30 January – 20 April 2016).

Behind-the-scenes visits to these stunning landscapes provide an essential backdrop to the exhibition, which examines the role of the garden in art history from Impressionism to the Avant-Garde. Cinemagoers will be able to appreciate the natural beauty from which painters such as Liebermann, Sorolla and Nolde worked, and discover how these inspiring surroundings translated onto the canvas. Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse offers fresh insights from international gardening experts and art critics in order to bring the history of the garden’s relationship with art to life. Interviews with renowned modern artists Lachlan Goudie and Tania Kovats will also reveal how the relationship between the artist and the natural world continues to flourish in the 21st Century.

Painting The Modern Garden: Monet To Matisse is in cinemas nationwide from 12th April.
