The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement
25 March 2017
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 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 famous locations throughout the Eastern United States, UK and France, this mesmerising film is a feast for the eyes.
WHY DO PEOPLE PAINT FLOWERS?
In his third presentation for the State Cinema’s EXHIBITION ON SCREEN series, Chris Arneaud-Clarke will consider why people paint flowers, reflecting on the work of unconventional American Impressionist, Jane Peterson, and her boldly colourful “flower portraits”.
This special presentation follows the opening screening of The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement and is proudly presented by the Tasmanian College of the Arts, University of Tasmania.
