Exhibition on screen: Art Series: The Artists Garden — American Impressionism
- Thursday, 27 July, 7:30pm NEW, ONCE
Doco based on the exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement at the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut.
“American impressionism took its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet but followed its own path that over a 30-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.” (Exhibition on Screen)
