For many great artists the garden has long been considered a desirable subject for the expression of color, light and atmosphere. Claude Monet is perhaps the most well-known painter of gardens but other greats such as Van Gogh, Pissarro, Matisse and Sargent all viewed the garden as a meaningful focus for their talents. The work of these great artists, along with many others, feature in a major 2016 exhibition Painting the Modern Garden from The Royal Academy, London.

This dazzling film takes a magical journey from the gallery to the gardens, to Giverny and Seebüll and other glorious grounds favored by artists. Here we discover how early twentieth-century artists designed and cultivated their own gardens to explore contemporary utopian ideas and motifs of color and form. Monet said, "Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything."
