Take a closer look at the evolution of the modern garden in art between the 1860s and the 1920s – a period of significant social change and great innovation in the arts. The subject of nature and horticulture was popular among artists who wanted to capture the natural and the domestic in one sitting. This landmark exhibition features artists such as Renoir, Klee, Cezanne, Klimt, Pissarro, Matisse, Manet, Van Gogh, Sargent and Kandinsky, with over 120 artworks on display.

Covering some of the most important Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists from the early twentieth century, the subject of the garden gave these artists the freedom to explore their style, push boundaries and examine the ever changing world around them. A particular highlight of this exhibition has to be Monet’s monumental Agapanthus Triptych – an incredibly beautiful trio of paintings that will be reunited especially for this display. It will be the first time the three paintings will be shown together in the UK.
