In the Gardens of Impressionism explores the Impressionists’ fascination with gardens, parks and flowers in the context of the 19th century craze for horticulture and the changing political and cultural landscape in France. It discusses the artists both as painters and as gardeners, and, using source material such as gardening manuals from the period, offers exciting new interpretations of their art. 

With its insights about familiar works by Manet, Renoir, Degas, Monet and Pissarro, thorough coverage of less familiar Impressionists such as Bazille, Caillebotte, and Guillaumin, and spectacular illustrations, including period photographs, engraving from journals, and cartoons as well as paintings and drawings, this book will appeal to students, art lovers and gardening enthusiasts alike.
