Exhibition On Screen: American Impressionism
Exhibition On Screen: The Artist's Garden - American Impressionism
Following the smash hit Painting The Modern Garden: Monet To Matisse from Season 3 of Exhibition On Screen comes a new film based on the hugely popular exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism And 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 such as Renoir and Monet. It then followed its own path and, over a thirty-year period, speaks as much about the American nation as it does about the artistic movement.
The story of American impressionism is closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in the midst of rapid urbanisation in that country. Looking at studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
