Documentary: inside ‘Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse’

Published 28 April 2020

Originally released in cinemas, this ‘Exhibition on Screen’ film takes us back to our landmark exhibition, ‘Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse’, examining the role gardens played in the evolution of art from the early 1860s through to the 1920s.

  • EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: 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.

    This EXHIBITION ON SCREEN by Seventh Art Productions captured this exhibition when it was on show at the Royal Academy. Guided by expert curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, the film takes you on an immersive journey through the exhibition to discover how Monet and his contemporaries built and cultivated modern gardens.
