VIDEO: Painting the Modern Garden

One of the new initiatives by Museums during the Lockdown has been better promotion of the Exhibitions on Screen films made in the past in association with different art galleries and museums.

This week the Royal Academy of Arts has posted a video related to its 2016 Exhibition about Painting The Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse.

Back in 2016, we filled our Main Galleries with all the vibrant colours of the garden, as we traced its many forms through a period of great social change and innovation in the arts.
Discover the paintings of some of the most important artists of the early twentieth century exploring the theme, including Renoir, Cezanne, Pissarro, Manet, Sargent, Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Matisse, Klimt and Klee.

A 90 minute DOCUMENTARY was made about ‘Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse’
