Gardens and flowers have often been the first choice for artists looking for a subject or motif – from Renoir and Monet in France to the American Impressionists of New England. In this session, we will discover the places that inspired great art – the homes and gardens of solo painters and artists’ communities – and find out more about the lives and motivations of some of our greatest painters.
The workshop is led by Jackie Bennett. Jackie began her career working on gardening TV programmes, before turning to writing. She is a former editor of The English Garden magazine and author of several books including The Writer’s Garden, Shakespeare’s Gardens and most recently The Artist’s Garden. Jackie lives in Norfolk and is a regular visitor to the Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
