“The interwar period in Britain saw a flowering of artists who retreated to planting and painting in their gardens – their own private havens. This exhibition will bring together intimate depictions of gardens, greenhouses, and favoured specimens by artists including Charles Mahoney, Evelyn Dunbar, Eric Ravilious and Ithell Colquhoun.
Conversely, this period also saw a number of artists engaging with public green spaces amidst a growing interest for recreation. From fireworks and fairgrounds to picnics and parties, these images captured a new, modern experience.”
