Exhibition On Screen: The Artist’s Garden – American Impressionism
Monday 29th May 2017 -
Following the smash hit film ‘Painting The Modern Garden: Monet To Matisse’ comes a brand new production based on the hugely popular exhibition ‘The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism & 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 treasured locations throughout the eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
Unfortunately director Phil Grabsky can no longer attend for a post-film Q&A.
