GARDENS

30th July 2015 - 15th August 2015         Open Tue-Sat 10am - 6pm

Private Show:   Friday 31st of July   6-10pm

 

Take a walk around an English stately home and you encounter some of the finest examples of the country's artistry. Paintings by Turner, Constable or Gainsborough. Novels and plays by Shakespeare, Dickens or Coward.  We may encounter an exquisite Chippendale cabinet or a grandiose ceiling by the architect James Wyatt. But if you want to experience England's greatest contribution to aesthetics, you'll need to leave the house altogether and explore the landscape garden that surrounds it.

 

 

English landscape gardeners created masterpieces that surpassed anything on the continent. The history of gardens is an important part of England's green infrastructure and they fulfil multiple roles. They allow us to escape from the every day's busy life. They are the places where we can enjoy life's simple pleasures: to plant and seed, relax, play, and grow our own food.

 

 

With these references in mind, Gabriel Fine Art present a carefully selected group of artists whose work record and celebrate the beauty and importance of nature and gardens in the cities and in our life set against various images of objects and maps from the Garden Museum, Lambeth Library and Kew Gardens Museum.
