Last quote by Ann Dumas

Monet is really the artist for whom the garden became a vehicle for expressing his feelings about the First World War. He was acutely conscious of it, his son and his stepson were both fighting in the war. Giverny wasn't that far away from some of the fighting. On occasion he could even hear the gunfire in his garden.feedback

The latest quote from Ann Dumas is: “Monet was not only obviously a very great artist, but he was a phenomenal gardener and I think people often don't realise just to what extent he was a really serious horticulturalist and a very knowledgeable botanist. And the garden and the art kind of intertwine throughout his career as a complete sort of symbiosis. So he's the foundation of the exhibition and his working dates provide its chronological framework.”. It comes from the 'Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse' article.
