Sanctuary: Artist-Gardeners 1919-1939The Garden Museum explores the golden age of garden painting between two world wars with its new exhibition, Sanctuary: Artist-Gardeners 1919-1939. Showcasing the works of over 20 artists, the exhibition illustrates how the peaceful period between two wars allowed for a number of artists who also gardened to entwine their pastimes and find sanctuary by producing a number of exceptional works showcasing gardens and plants. After World War One, many reacted to the trauma by returning to pastoral landscapes and the exhibition showcases works such as Mahoney's 'The Garden', Evelyn Dunbar's 'Woman Tending Bocconea Cordata' and Nancy Nicholson's playful depiction of her father 'William Nicholson at Work'.

 

About Garden Museum

Adjacent to Lambeth Palace on the banks of the River Thames , the Garden Museum provides an insight into the history and development of gardens and gardening in the UK. From May 2017, following a major refurbishment, visitors to the museum can see the collection in The Ark Gallery, a building within a building which creates seven new galleries for the museum's collection - a recreation of the cabinet of curiosities put together by John Tradescants (father and son).
