In the Gardens of Impressionism

In the Gardens of Impressionism


Clare Willsdon's book is a colourful excursion through the French Impressionists' gardens – from Courbet and Degas to Renoir and Manet.

Discussing the artists' complementary roles as painters and as gardeners, Willsdon offers exciting new interpretations of their art informed by source material such as popular gardening manuals of the day. She also explores the garden as a new kind of space with political undertones and relates it to the Impressionists' adoption of plein-air techniques.

Analysing specific works, their historical and horticultural context is presented in a clear, informative and engaging manner and lively discussion of the artists' private lives gives the text another satisfying perspective.
