Gardens of the Impressionists 2023 Large Wall Calendar
Never did a group of history's finest artists pay such fond attention to gardens as the Impressionists. Their close study of plants and atmosphere enabled them to abstract each essential shape in their compositions, reproducing with warmth and fidelity the elusive play of light on leaf and blossom. Monet, Morisot, Pissarro, and Caillebotte were among those who painted their own and one another's gardens. Animated, untidy, and only conditionally domesticated, nature was perfectly suited to the Impressionists' joyous approach to painting. They brought forth the soul of the garden in works so full of motion that they seem to flicker, flutter, and splash.
