The exhibition Impressionist Gardens chart the development of painting of gardens including not only works all the major figures of Impressionism, but also of their precursors, including Delacroix and Corot, as well as later artists such as Klimt, Munch and Sargent. 

In the decade 1860, with the introduction of hundreds of species of plants and flowers "new" from Asia, Africa and America, and the opening of the Royal Parks, the gardens were very popular in France. With a passion for color, outdoor effects and issues of modern life, the Impressionist painters and their followers were not alien to this trend and turned their eyes naturally to the gardens for inspiration. Despite this and its great attraction gardens painting Impressionist type was widespread outside France. This show will also feature not only outstanding examples of the French impressionist masters but also the representation of garden items by artists from other countries in Europe and the United States, reaching the post-impressionism and symbolism.
