The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 25 March - 25 June 2017
Category Cinema Screening

Following the smash hit Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse from Season 3 of Exhibition On Screen comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement from the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American impressionism.

American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a thirty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about a much-loved artistic movement.

The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the Eastern United States, United Kingdom and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
