Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse.
In January 2016, the RA will present a major exhibition examining the role of gardens in the paintings of Claude Monet and his contemporaries.
Spanning the 1860s to the 1920s, – a period of great social change and innovation in the arts, – the exhibition will showcase Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists, including Manet, Cézanne, van Gogh, Matisse, Kandinsky, Klee, and Klimt.
Alongside the paintings will be a rich selection of documentary material including horticultural books, journals and letters. The finale of the exhibition will feature a magnificent selection of Monet’s water lily paintings including the Agapanthus Triptych of 1916-1919. It will be the first time this monumental triptych has been displayed together in the UK.
Don’t miss this opportunity to view the garden in all its glory.
