Gardens, a Paradise for Artists
Gardens may vanish, but their depictions remain. Since ancient times, their combination of nature with artifice has set almost all artists dreaming at some time or other, and visual artists as different as Fragonard, Monet, Murakami and Tim Burton have endeavoured to render their unique visions of the garden.
Beautiful, sensual, poetic and mysterious, gardens recur throughout the history of art as the scene and embodiment of artists' dreams and anxieties and as symbols of the existential quest for Paradise.
