Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art.

These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Royal Academy of Arts, London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, this film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract colour, decorative design and utopian ideas.

Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring fascination with gardens today.

Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything’. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is an ideal film.


“A ravishing joy from start to finish.” The Guardian

“Time and space dissolve in pure shimmering light and colour.” The Telegraph

“A show that feels as intellectually invigorating as it is visually delightful.” The Times
