If you are a plein air artist or enthusiast you must see this exhibit. It will affect you deeply! The Exhibit runs through Jan 3, 2016
The Artist’s Garden will tell the story of American Impressionist artists and the growing popularity of gardening as a leisure pursuit at the turn of the 20th century. Focusing on the American Garden Movement of 1887-1920, the exhibition will consider such themes as American artists’ visits to European gardens; the enthusiasm for gardening among women; the urban garden, the artist’s garden, and the garden in winter. Organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, the exhibition and its accompanying catalogue will include representations of gardens across the United States and Europe.
Among the artists whose work will be included are some of the most beloved artists in the Reynolda House collection such as William Merritt Chase and Childe Hassam, along with other major American artists not represented at Reynolda, including Cecilia Beaux, Maria Oakey Dewing, Frederick Carl Frieseke, John Twachtman, and J. Alden Weir.
