Gardens; a new exhibition at the Grand Palais resonates with spring

Gardens; a new exhibition at the Grand Palais resonates with spring

This exhibition is not a complete history of the art of gardens, nor does it pretend to be comprehensive, but looks at how the garden is a work of art that stimulates all the senses, being both a botanical ensemble and an artistic construction. Jardins at the Grand Palais is a modest attempt to echo Foucault's frequently repeated but nonetheless essentially true phrase, "The garden is the smallest part of the world and the whole world at the same time". Fragonard, Monet, Cézanne, Klimt, Picasso and Matisse are among the great artists who celebrated the garden and transformed this enclosed space into a world of freedom and imagination. From the Renaissance to the present day, this extraordinary exhibition traces six centuries of the garden as an artistic statement and an inspiration and brings together paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, installations, and aural and olfactory environments to lead us on an immersive and poetic journey that resonates with the call of spring.
