Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse

The modern garden, changed by the 19th innovations such as hybridisation, the use of glasshouses and foreign exploration, was part and parcel of a period of great social change and the changing face of modern cities to which artists responded from the1860s onwards. This lecture will explore the ways in which the theme of the garden inspired so much of the most beautiful and innovative art of late 19th and early 20th century, including the works of Monet, Manet, Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh and Matisse.
